Visiting Locos & Road Vehicles




Please Note:

To prevent separation of the pulling vehicle, all gauge locomotives must be fitted with a safety restraint/cut-out between the drivers riding car and the pulling locomotive/train.  A working  vacuum  or a continuous braking system, on 7 ¼ gauge engines, is only required if you are pulling public passengers.  


All Locomotives must be loaded via hydraulic platforms in  the steaming  bay. Maximum weight of 500Kg (1100lbs).


 Please  read the following documents before you arrive on site.

Track Loading Gauge





Visitors from other societies are made welcome, with or without loco's, every Sunday from April to late October. If you would like to run your engine, please contact the Secretary in advance. You will be required to produce a current boiler certificate (for all steam engines), proof of insurance (all loco's and road vehicles) and a valid club membership card for inspection.

Water and 12 volt DC facilities are available.  In the case of rolling stock for passengers to sit on, we would ask that it meets the present Health & Safety Requirements for Miniature Railways and that the insurance covers the carrying of passengers.
