Next Public Running is Sunday 6th October

Another busy day at the August running, but just for a change I've captured the Traction Engine that was also running around the site on the day. The Next Public Running is Sunday 6th October, but start getting ready now for our legendary Halloween running on Saturday 26th October.

Members' and Visitors' Running Days 2019

The club has running days where any member of the club can run their railway, traction or stationary engine at our facilities. The aim of the day is to run, enjoy, socialise and show models to other club members. Unfortunately these events are not open to the public due to restrictions on our insurance policy.

Members of other clubs are welcome to attend any member's day throughout the year. Boiler certificates will be required. Please get in contact if you wish to run from another club to let us know to expect you (and to make sure we have enough tea and biscuits).

Members day running is usually from about 10am to 5pm.
