Society Diary

Hot Topics:

  • Boiler Test Regulations 2018. Copies of all 3 Volumes of the new boiler test regulations are available on the library page. A one-page summary of the regulations (as we understand them) is published here.

  • Spark Arrestors. With effect from 1 January 2019, some form of spark arrestor must be fitted to any steam engine in steam at CNMES public events. This includes both rail and road engines. While no standard is specified (too many variations), a short guide is published here.

Wednesday Evenings

Eddie Attree is the coordinator for Wednesday meetings. On Wednesdays, "Bitz" means that members bring objects or subjects for discussion to the clubhouse. Wednesday meetings start at 1930 hrs and finish at about 2115 hrs with tea and cake (unless shown differently).
