New Year Steam Up

02Jan2020

From 10:00 until 15:00

ESME Members only.

The 7 1/4" track is already operational on the Comrie circuit, the direction of travel is from the station, going clockwise uphill and through the tunnel.

The Newliston Circuit for 5" / 3½" gauge locos. The Thursday and Saturday teams have been working in all weathers to hopefully have a complete running circuit across the new bridge. The majority of the track is already in place and the embankments at both ends of the bridge are currently being built up to height.  If we cannot complete the circuit with Newliston Rail then hopefully a temporary Aluminium track can be laid on the shale to allow 5" gauge locos to run a full circuit on the 28th.

We are almost there and we only have two more Thursdays and three Saturdays before Xmas to have it ready for members.  Robert will let you know after the last Saturday before Xmas if all systems are go!
