6th July Running Day

Hi all.

Thanks to everyone who came along to our running day yesterday. We had a good number of passengers and locos. Thanks to all members who came along!

Also we will be running this Sunday 13th July (weather permitting) 10am – 3pm for the school holidays! So come on down to get the kids out the house for a ride! After that we will go back to running every 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month.

Thanks everyone. Have a safe and fun school holidays!

We are running Sunday 6th June!

Hi everyone.

This Sunday the 6th we will be running 10am – 3pm if the weather plays nice as some members will be away the following Sunday the 13th due to the E.B.O.P Sparks in the Dark night run.

However if we have enough members who are not attending the Night Run, we will try to run on the 13th of July if we can. Will update you all about it at a closer date.

Thanks all & have a great, safe week.

New Committee & Tunnel Update

Hi all.

15 members turned up for the Working bee on Saturday 28th June, very long day with huge amount of work completed. The outside tunnel walls were completed with the polystyrene water membrane, drainage metal and filter material to keep the earth and drainage material separated. The tunnel floor was also laid with a truck load of concrete. The roof is next on the list. A huge thanks to all who were able to attend!

Also, following our 2014 AGM last month here is our New Committee.

President: Mal Whittle 

Vice President: John Shelton

Secretary & Treasurer: Isabel Scott

General Committee: John Heald, John Bremner, Graham Nelson, Dave Watt, Dave Scott

Thank’s all. See you this coming Sunday if weather permits.

Thanks to all who came today! We had a moderate flow of Passengers and a Birthday Party! Thanks to all members who came along. Here we see Allen’s new 2-seater carriage made very nicely running smoothly and comfortably. A great job. Thanks again see you all next time!

Thanks to everyone who came along to our latest Working Bee. We managed to put a sleeve over the water pipe, put crusher dust on floor, levelled and compacted it, ready for concrete.
