Visiting Loco’s & Road Vehicles
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.
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).
