Society Diary

Hot Topics:

  • It will probably be no surprise to learn that the decision was taken yesterday to cancel the Usk Show for this year. We held off for as long as possible in the hope that things would improve, but we have now reached the point where we would have had to commit to significant spending to keep the hope alive. My thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of last year's show. Let us hope that next year we will all be back on the sun-soaked showground for another great event. Chris (Usk Show Steam Corner Secretary)

  • The new 2020 code of practice for operating miniature railways is now in the library. This replaces HSG216 from 2001.

  • As many of our members are not in the first flush of youth, the committee has decided to suspend all club meetings until the Covid-19 crisis recedes and the Government changes its guidelines. Regretfully, therefore, The programme of events shown below, including Wednesday, Saturday and Open day meetings is postponed until further notice.
  • A private Society "chat room" has been set up so we can stay in touch. This is for members only. If you have not already received an email inviting you to join, please contact
