LATEST FROM THE RAILS.

Hi everyone
 I must apologize for not writing sooner but yours truly has been travelling around western Queensland bringing much needed rain to everywhere that we went. Yes, almost 27 days of wet weather…………….enough of me.
We will be running on Sunday 17th July from the usual time of 11am to 4pm……..unless it is raining….which I believe it was for the June Public Running Day.  

It is great to see that everyone is accepting and abiding by the Workplace Health and Safety rule of having fully ENCLOSED FOOTWEAR.(no sandels or thongs or bare feet are allowed now).

Now, what everyone has been waiting to hear……we ARE moving…and soon.         As of the week following the July Public Running Day on the 17th July, the track will begin to be cut up and the relocation to Lemway Park will begin. This means that if you need a train ride ‘fix’ before relocation…..the 17th July will be your last for at least 6 months….yes SIX (6) months minimum. The new track will be bigger and better than the present track and will be BAT FREE.

Keep watching this web page and our Facebook page for updates on the progress being made at our new location.                                                                                                         To find your way to Lemway Park is easy. If you are travelling SOUTH along RUTHVEN Street and you come to STENNER Street or NORTH along RUTHVEN Street from the New England Highway, you will need to turn WEST into STENNER Street (DOWN THE HILL) This is the K Mart / Pizza Hut corner.  Continue down STENNER Street and go past FAY Court and over the little bridge and then take the first street on the LEFT…..This is LEMWAY Avenue. The track will be located along Lemway Avenue from approximately STUMM Street and all the way along Lemway Avenue to Kratzmann Court.

Next Public running day will be Sunday 17th July.

Until next time, may your lights be green and your rails straight.

Below is a map showing how to get to our new location……

The aerial view below is the latest PROPOSAL for the new track layout. The new track will have approximately 900+metres of mainline as against 656 metres at the present site.

 TLSI Proposed Track
 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.
