Friends of Northcliffe – Easter Event 2012

Saturday 7th April 2012 – 12:00-16:00
Northcliffe Railway

Well what a grand old day out. The Easter bunny has been very busy all day placing eggs around the woods with flocks of children searching for them. There were also lots of other activities they could get involved in.

The railways were kept very busy with a steady queue all afternoon. We also had two recently completed loco’s making their public debuts, ‘AMOS’ the Club loco fresh from the paint shop and Paul Whitfield’s new ‘Hunslet Badger’. Both performed very well along with David Brimacombe’s ‘Molegasser’ and Keith Parkinson’s Class 25. On the raised track we had Ken Shipley’s B1, John Hawkes with his Simplex and John Mills’ ‘Lion’. Mick Gray also had several stationary engines on display and running.

Thankyou to everyone who came and helped out today either in the kitchen, driving, guards, station staff or just being there and helping the public and making the event happen. What a great start to the season.

Many thanks, Russ.

EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO THE WEATHER

Sunday 3rd June 2012 – 12:00-16:00
Northcliffe Railway

As the main event at Northcliffe was cancelled a few members met at St. Pauls Church for tea and scones. This then led onto a surprise tour of the church’s bell tower and clock mechanism and also a lesson in bell ringing. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me so had to make do with my phone!

Well what a great day, even the odd heavy shower didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits!

Thankyou to all our visitors that came from King’s Lynn, Southport, The Wirral, Millerbeck Light Railway, Keighley and Brighouse as well as our own members. Thanks also to the Signalmen, tea makers and station staff and ever else who came and supported this very successful day.

Northcliff Railway Training Day Aug 2012

Wed, August 22nd 2012 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Junior Members, Meetings, Northcliff, Rail 

Wednesday 22nd August 13:00 – 16:30 in the Northcliff Clubhouse.
This event is only open to members and their families due to insurance restrictions.

Building on the session last year we will be running a few separate sessions covering the different areas of the railway.

The first session 13:00-14:00 is for everyone and will go over the clubs operating rules followed by any questions. Details are still being worked on but topics for following sessions will cover ‘The Club Loco’, ‘The Signalling System and Roles of the Signalman’ and possibly a talk on ‘Boiler Testing’. Obviously these later sessions might not be everyone’s cup of tea but a timetable will be available on the day for you to plan what you want to see and give you time to ‘play’ outside.

The practical side of this event does rely on a selection of different locos being available for members (young and older) to have a go. If you own a loco and can spare a few hours from 14:00 onwards then please let me know. Your help will be much appreciated.

If you have any ideas and suggestion for topics then please leave a comment and I shall try and work it into the day.

I should just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came to help out at the Santa Special today.

We managed to make Mel’s dream come true again and it made me feel really proud when we see all sections of the Society and Friends of Northcliff  pulling together to make events happen.

Thank you again to all those who helped out and to those who didn’t you missed a treat.

Best regards Ken Shipley.
