Thursday Meetings Resume
Perhaps that should be return as resume implies there's only been a short pause certainly not one of 16 months plus.
Hopefully you have received the email from Paul (our membership secretary) with the details of what awaits but in case not, here is the nitty gritty ( I think that phrase is banned under woke regulation ).
From then on we expect to carry on as before with meeting on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays on the month with details on this webpage, on the clubhouse noticeboard and the newsletter.
The track will soon be open again and also public running will hopefully start at the end of July. Therefore its essential that if you want to run your steam locomotives that you ensure that they are in ticket both with steam and hydraulic certification. Remember it's not just a piece of paper but essential for you and for us primarily for insurance purposes that you are legal to run.
Printed on the exclusive members page as at 11th May this year are current steam and hydraulic expiry dates please check the status of your locomotives. The expiry lists are abridged but the full record are also available on this page. If you have any questions or doubts please contact John Elsworth who maintains the master records or Brian Hunt who is the committe boiler testing representative.
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.
