A Good Start

The public running season is now well into its stride with 8 running days already completed.

The good news is that for most of them the weather worked in our favour and there was plenty of activity, enough indeed to put a smile on our Treasurer’s face.  The May holiday weekend was however a little disappointing with rival events taking place in Bedford and elsewhere.

In June public running will be on Sundays 8th and 22nd.  For members there is also the Traction Engine Rally covering 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Staying within the Society, Terry White is speaking on “Rocking Horse Manufacture” on Monday 9th.  Should be an interesting session from a professional in the art.

We end the month on 29th with the Small Loco & Diesel/Electric Rally when the emphasis is on 5″ gauge and smaller. All of the tracks at Hammerhill will be in operation. The main car park will be open as will be the Clubhouse.  A train service will be conveying visitors to the event.
