Update 25th April.


Plans are being been made to start public running on June 27th and thereafter into the usual pattern of 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. The proposed details are on the home page and are of course at the mercy of the the Government, Public Health England (with the two ronnies of doom), Carrie Symonds and any one else with an axe to grind.


With regards to Thursday evening meetings, there will be a committee meeting on the 19th of May when we can hopefully finalise a start date and a return to some degree of normality.


With  the rule of 6 at our disposal again things can start to  happen down at the clubhouse. There are a lot of jobs large and small that need to be addressed so talk with Paul Parsons if you are able to be of help. It's not just Wednesdays too, the six pack rule has let us use (or makes us use) other days for work activities. They still have to be work related, there's no casual socialising; yet.








The cabling has been completed and the system tested. All we now need is to get back to normal. For those with long memories, meetings were the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month!

Boiler certification


Nothing has changed in this respect. The latest (Jan 2020) boiler certification records are now on the private members page. Please check the status of your locomotives boiler well before running it at Field Place or any other track. Brian Hunt points out that there's no need to have steam or hydraulic tests carried out until you are actually going to run as the clock will start ticking again and the validity period will be wasted. It's not like an MOT on your car.
