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.




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.
