Due to the current situation Re Covid 19 with great regret we have taken the decision to postpone the Annual Dinner scheduled for October until next year (2021).

We may look at March or April or leave it until later in the year and see how things pan out.

My sincere apologies for disappointing all the members who have supported the Dinner over the years.

Thank you
Ken Shipley

Thankyou for checking our website.

Unfortunatly due to the COVID restrictions we aren’t able to take passengers on the trains at the moment and our club activities are very limited. The health and safety of our visitors and members is very important to us and until the situation improves and we have the chance to put measures in place this will remain the case.

Our Future Events section here on the website is updated regularly with the latest developments but initially these will be for members only while we decide how things can work.

Take care and stay safe.

We have received a very kind invite to Ripon Light Railway on Saturday 31st August from 2pm.

This is a 2 foot gauge railway where they have various Lister style locos along with several others. The plan is to arrive there around 2pm, have a ride and look around the museum/grounds for a couple of hours and then drift on to Southgate Railway which is a nearby 16mm setup (visiting locos welcome, 32mm gauge). There is also a fish and chip shop around the corner for tea! The address and map were sent out with our summer newsletter email. If you are coming would you please let Russ Coppin know so he won’t be the only one there and who to contact should anything change. Please mention to other members to make sure this fantastic last minute opportunity isn’t missed and bring along any family/friends.
