erected for tools etc. New fencing has
been erected around the steaming bays and the lean-to at the end of the
clubhouse has been renovated. The cage
for the storage of gas cylinders etc. has been installed.
The Tuesday Track
Meetings have started again with activity seen on all the tracks and members
glad to get back to some sort of normality.
The first meeting in
August saw the largest attendance since before the beginning of the
pandemic. A nice sunny afternoon and
lots of activity on all the tracks with a group from the Great Cockcrow
Railway visiting Rolfe Lane during the afternoon and evening.
The last Tuesday
meeting on 19th October saw six steam locos and one battery loco
on the track as well as activity in the Garden Railway.
About 40 members ‘attended’
the AGM Meeting in October online by Zoom.
Adrian Parker is the new Secretary and Alex Linkins takes over as
Safety Officer. Peter Gallon and Bob
White were elected to the committee.
A 120-page book
covering a lot of the activities of the Society and its members over the past
50 years is to be published towards the end of the year. It will be a strictly limited edition with
the number of copies printed depending the interest shown. If you are interested in a copy, please
