Continuing delays in arranging connection of Water and Electricity to the track area has, unfortunately, required us to postpone the official opening yet again.

We shall not open for Public Running on 03 July and it remains uncertain that there will be any Public Running in 2022.


Meanwhile, the volunteers are continuing to work on the railway and erection of the station canopy is now well underway with the water-tower, ticket office and signal box next on the list.

Internal wiring and plumbing of the Drivers' Rest & First Aid room is nearly completed in readiness for rapid connexion, once the supplies are available from the Sports Pavilion.

Similar work is also being undertaken in our Club-room/Workshop.

We held a Train and Track Testing afternoon and this highlighted a number of minor snags in the station area for which we are investigating remedial actions.
