Hi John. Usually we go between 10 and 11. I think there will be a few of us up there if the weather holds at least

It was good to meet you John. Glad you all enjoyed the day! I was a little busy all day with having the little one with me too but was enjoyable all the same! The turnout was good considering the poor weather the day before! I'll be up again probably boxing day to test a few things with the loco but the next event like you say is the New Years Day Steam Up And meet. As last time all welcome!

Hi JC. Next running day will be on Sunday the 20th oh January. I will publish a full list of dates in the coming weeks. A good rule of thumb is the third Sunday of the month with occasional extras added in.

A meeting of minds!
Today a meeting was held at the Whissendine track site to discuss proposals for an extension to the ground level 5" and 7.25" track. A number of ideas have been bounced around to pretty much double the length from our current 550 feet to just over 1000 feet of mainline. Work will almost certainly involve improving the steaming bay facilities too.
This decision along with plans already to fully finish the new club building before the June 1st and 2nd open weekend will drastically improve facilities for our members and visitors. All this is without taking our eye off the ball with general site housekeeping and maintenance.
New members are always welcome if you fancy coming and getting stuck in! There is always work to be undertaken no matter what skills you have... Here's to making 2019 our best year yet!
SP.
