Happy New Year (2)

Good Evening Members,
The committee have agreed to restart club meetings from Thursday 10th February, with a talk
by Keith West on Stuart Turner Internal combustion Engines.
Mask wearing will be a personal choice.
Looking forward to seeing you.
The Commitee.

Boiler certification



This is usually the quiet time for the boiler testers although since the pandemic somethings have got out synch. Do 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 the complete boiler records that you can also look through.




Omicron Update


Here we are again, been here before if I remember correctly.

We intend to start up again on Thursday 10th February and masks with be voluntary. We will try to keep the clubhouse ventilated as much as wind, rain, ice and snow will permit.


There will be NO wine or cheese on offer and do not bring your own flask of tea as we intend to finish the evening with a brew brew of our own.


Do please try to attand the AGM on the 24th february as there has to be a minimum attendance by at least 25% of members that are entitled to vote for any resolutions proposed to be legally valid.


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.
