Member's Calendar

Member's Running Days

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.

Tuesday Evening Meeting

Social club meetings are on alternate Tuesday nights at the clubhouse, and often have a theme or event. These meetings are for members only, although prospective members are welcome, please ensure you find a member and are signed in as a visitor.

Meetings run from 7pm to 9pm, with optional members running afternoon.

Maintenance and Training

Working parties to keep track & site shipshape and operational staff trained. Check notice board for details.

Public Running

11am to 4pm (setup from 9:30am), unless stated otherwise.

This calendar will be updated throughout the year to show updates and amendments.
