LATEST FROM THE RAILS.

Hi All
Hope everyone is enjoying this humid hot weather.
I must say thankyou those who came to the January Public Running Day. Numbers were again well down unfortunately due to the huge numbers of flying foxes but also with the school beginning and students returning to school and with littlies beginning Prep etc., we do realize that money is often in short supply at this time of the year.
 
News on our relocation to Lemway Park is not any closer at this stage. We are still waiting on Council to give us the all clear to begin the process of track removal and reinstall at the new site.
As a result of this present unknown, we have decided to NOT take any more Train Party bookings until further notice. Sunday 31st January was the last party unfortunately. We would not want people to have a party booked and have to cancel with only a week or so out from that occasion. It would be very upsetting for the children and a headache for the parents.
Keep watching our FaceBook page and here on our web pages for updates on what is happening. 
We again want to remind everyone that you MUST have ENCLOSED FOOTWEAR now to ride on the trains as of 1st January 2016.
Enclosed footwear is exactly that as in sneakers, shoes, runners etc.,  not thongs or sandles or bare feet.
This is an order from Workplace Health and Safety and as such we must comply. Clubs in NSW and Victoria have had to comply with a similar ruling from their respective Government bodies for a number of years now. Queenslanders have been lucky to have had the extra time to wear sandles and thongs. As a result of this, PLEASE don’t have a shot at our members if they say that you can’t ride. It is not our doing and we must comply or close up completely.
Enough said.
Have a great week all and we hope to see you at the February Public Running Day on Sunday 21st February.
Until next time, may your lights be green and your rails straight.

Keep watching this page or our Facebook page for news about our relocation to Lemway Park in Lemway Avenue at Kearneys Spring. You will be able to access Lemway Avenue from Stenner Street. When travelling on Ruthven Street you will turn WEST into Stenner Street (at the K Mart / Pizza Hut corner) and Lemway Avenue is then the first street on your left after the lakes. The relocation will happen sometime in 2016 but exactly when we are unable to say. We expect that it will begin somewhere around February / March / April and will take us approximately 6 months to complete the transition.
We are excited about the move as the new track layout will be totally different to what you have experienced at Kearneys Spring Park……….AND BAT FREE.

The scan below shows a proposed layout at the new location. It is a bit fuzzy but it should come clearer if you click on it…………….I hope.

If anyone wishes to join the club, we are keen to welcome new members. Anyone 16 years of age and above can join and the annual cost is $10 for Juniors from 16 years to 18 years of age and just $40 annually for those adults from 18 years of age. You don’t need to have our own locomotive as the club owns 3 steam locos and the petrol hydraulic powered cane loco for members to drive. If you have ever wanted to learn to drive a steam loco you can do it. The cost to learn is only your yearly membership. It only takes a little time and effort. Why not inquire today? If you are interested phone Graham on 0402085124.
