Time for some quiet contemplation before the highlight of the day….
which was the first members trains around the recently completed Almondell circuit! Operating on a ‘Figure of Eight’ trains started from Drumshoreland Station & then through the loop points gained access to the Almondell circuit. Nine minutes later via the second loop points the trains returned to Drumshoreland Station.
Richard’s composite video gives a good idea of both the new Almondell circuit & the existing Comrie & Newliston circuits.
Once the Almondell circuit is properly commissioned we anticipate a lot of very interesting & challenging running sessions!
