Public Running Days

Public Running Days

Our railway opens to the public on the 3rd Sunday of the month (2nd Sunday in December) for rides from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  A list of upcoming public running days is below.

Public running days are an opportunity for members of the society to share their passion for model engineering and railways with the community.  If you have any questions about our society, its activities or the trains we operate, please don’t hesitate to ask a member.

Whilst we endeavour to have a variety of trains available for visitors to ride, operational requirements, fire restrictions and volunteer availability may mean that steam locomotives may not be operating at all times.
