As at December 2016 there were three projects currently in the pipe line:

                                                     No 1 Refurbish the kitchen ( Council have approved this )  Completed

                                                    No 2 Install a canopy over the station area  Well In Progress

 The roof over the station area is making rapid progress on the elevated track,  which will be followed by a roof over part of the steaming bays.   This will enable steam tests etc. to be done under cover in future


                                                    No 3 Redesign steaming bay area to overcome the problem

                                                                of congestion (This is a discussion document at the present moment)

If you have any ideas, comments, or wish to help then please do come to the club and make your views known.


To lock the main door correctly, make sure the door is fully closed, the handle is then lifted up as far as it will go, the door can then be locked. As a final check depress the handle and if resistance is felt immediately all is OK. If the handle can be fully depressed the door has not been secured, repeat the procedure until the door is locked.

The last thing we need is unwanted visitors and all the problems that can follow. If you are the last person on site you are responsible for securing the site this includes checking all external doors to the Club house, Garage door, Signal box doors, Gardening shed, Raised/Ground level carriage sheds - these only need to be checked if they have been opened. If you are not sure then please take the time to double check - don’t assume they have been locked,

Thank you for taking the time to read this important notice
