Saturday 9th July

Geoff is organising and steam up on the Saturday 9th July. He also hopes that some non-members will come along and see what we get up to so if you want to let off some steam come on down for 9 in the morning with an ending probably about 2.

All times are suggested and not mandatory

Boiler certification



For the next 25 years all delays or issues will be attributed to the pandemic. So please keep your eyes on steam and hydraulic expiry dates and get locos prepared for testing. There are the lists on the members private page that give an indication of who is due for what and when but they are not definitive. If in doubt there are also the complete boiler records that you can look through. If any doubt still remains please contact one of our boiler testers by phone, email or in person on a Wednesday morning down at field place




Code of Practice for Public Running Version 5


The code of practice for public running has been reviewed and where appropriate, revised. This will come into effect from when Public Running resumes, hopefully in June this year (2021)


If you are to be involved in public running either as track controller, as other operational members, or the drivers of either steam or electric locomotives then you must be familiar with its scope and coverage.


There is a downloadable version on the private members page in the documents section. However, such members as mentioned above who are track controllers or are licenced drivers will have received their personal copies included with their latest (Summer 21) newsletter.
