Promoting education and re-creation for recreation in South East London

Diary Dates for 2024

We shall be running for rides on the four Tuesdays in August from 12:30 until 16:00 and we will continue to open every Sunday from 12:30 to 16:00 until Sunday, 06 October inclusive.

We may run at the Hall Place Christmas Fair in November. Please watch this space for details later in the year.

The cost of a ride remains at £1.25 for children and the young at heart. Tickets bought in previous years will, as usual, be valid - and those bought this year and not used can be used in later years.

We will be holding another open day for members of other Societies on Saturday, 12 October, from 10:00 until 16:00, but will not be open for public to ride on those dates.

Yesterday, we hosted "A" Level Engineering students from a local school, who were given a short talk on how Steam locomotives work, followed by a running session on our track where they were, after some practical instruct, able to drive "solo". Their teachers also did likewise. We hope to involve more young adults in the society.
