Open day

On Saturday 3rd May, Welling held their open day for visiting clubs, the weather was glorious, and 10 3.5"/5" locos came and about 18 gauge one locomotives. Everyone had some great circuits, and at 1 o'clock a buffet lunch was served to all our visitors, which was very welcome, with tea and coffee served all day. Visiting clubs came from Tonbridge, Chelmsford, Croydon, Malden and Maidstone. At the end of the day our visitors thanked the club for a great days steaming, and also to the catering staff, who looked after their "victuals". This was our first test of the new electric gates that have been installed on the site by our landlords, and it seemed to work O.K.
