SOCIETY VISITS INFORMATION 2020:

NOTE:

Due to the Coronavirus situation, and the widespread closure of tourist venues and private railways, the Society’s committee has taken the decision to suspend all visits for the time being. We hope that we may be able to re-organise some visits for later in the year, but this will depend both on Government restrictions being lifted, and on the willingness of railway owners to host visits.

 

Booking forms for the balance of 2020 visits were sent out with NGN 358 in hopeful anticipation that COVID-19 restrictions will have been lifted permitting visits to run and also that the line owners will still permit the visits to take place.  Members are therefore invited to apply for visits in the normal manner.

Your cheques will not be banked until the visits are confirmed to be taking place.   If a visit is cancelled your cheques will be returned. Cheques already sent for visits booked around March are currently being held by the Visits Officer.

As the pandemic situation changes daily It is not possible to say when visits will be confirmed or cancelled but all participants will be advised as soon as a decision is made.

----------------------------------

We organise visits to narrow gauge and miniature railways throughout the year for the benefit of Members. These are mostly private visits, by special arrangement with the owners or operators of the railway.

We often get to see behind the scenes of the railway, such as the sheds and the workshops – areas normally off-limits to the general public. For this reason, we restrict our visits to Members only. If you are not a member and would like to come along on one of our visits, please join the Society first before you complete a booking form – see our Membership page. 

ONLINE BOOKING

Members who have registered their email address in Membermojo and wish to join us on a visit, can book on line through our Membermojo Store which will take you straight to the Store Visits page,  Alongside "Store Purchase", click on "Visit Store".  In the Store, you will find a list of all Society Visits which are currently available for Online Booking.

On receipt of your booking and payment, you will receive an automated email acknowledgement.

 

If you are booking for more people than just yourself, you will be asked to contact the relevant Visits Officer, providing the names, addresses and membership numbers (if known) in your party.
