BMES PROGRAMME for 2017

The following programme details the public running days, when the general public are invited to visit Summerfields' Railways and enjoy watching and riding on the trains. It also covers events that are normally open only to Society members and invited guests.

Those wishing to attend or take part in other events listed should make prior arrangements with the Secretary.

To avoid disappointment  for anyone wishing only to ride the trains they should attend on the days that are set aside for public running. Summerfields' Miniature Railways looks forward to meeting you on the Public Running dates highlighted in orange, below.

Departure times and Fares: On Public Running days the first train of the day departs at 10:30 from Haynes End and the last train of the day departs at 16:00. A return ticket costs £2.00 per person but children under the age of two travel free. Charges do not include the two smaller railways.

Two smaller railways, Winterfield and Springfield, operate at Hammer Hill; at the far end of the main railway. Rides on these railways are charged separately to the main railway, as shown in the table to the right of this page.

Note To Members: Club Nights and Meetings commence at 19:30.
