Puffing Park Closure and Suspension of Running Sessions
2020 Club Running Sessions at the Puffing Park
Club running sessions at the Puffing Park are normally scheduled for the Sunday morning following club nights at 10:00am and for the Wednesday afternoon two weeks after club nights at 1:00pm. They are subject to weather and to Society participation in other events which will take priority.
The 2020 season will start in April although there may be sessions in March subject to the weather, ground conditions and members’ wishes. There will have to be grounds and track maintenance working parties at the Puffing Park before running sessions can begin.
The following dates are scheduled for 2020:
APRIL – Sunday 12th and Wednesday 22nd
MAY – Sunday 17th and Wednesday 27th
JUNE – Sunday 14th and Wednesday 24th
JULY – Sunday 12th and Wednesday 22nd
AUGUST – Sunday 16th and Wednesday 26th
SEPTEMBER – Sunday 13th and Wednesday 23rd
OCTOBER – Sunday 18th and Wednesday 25th
Roger Stephen will endeavour to send out an email to those members who are on his Puffing Group list in advance of scheduled running sessions. If you wish to be added to that list please let Roger know. Subject to serviceability the club steam loco ‘Polly’ and the club electric loco should be available for members’ use at club running sessions. Running may be possible from November to March but weather and ground conditions generally conspire against it.
