Delays in arranging connection of Water and Electricity to the track area has, unfortunately, put the official opening back still further.

We had hoped to open this Sunday, 29 May. Unfortunately, due to a number problems the date of the opening had to be rescheduled for 03 July.

That date is now in jeopardy as we understand, from a recent meeting between Hall Place Management and our CEO, that the Highways Authority needs to grant permission for the footbridge over the River Cray to be closed to undertake part of the installation.

Our official opening may, therefore, have to be postponed again.


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 progressing 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.
