Our next Public Running Sunday is on Sunday 4th August, 11am to 4 pm.

The July running day was was a mixed bag in terms of the weather, but you were a joy to serve, and everyone seemed to enjoy their day. A number of you were with us for the first time, hopefully we'll see you back.

It's now the school holidays, if you haven't been before please give us a try, we do aim to provide good value family entertainment.

Further details of our public running here.

Members' and Visitors' Running Days 2024

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 members' 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.
