Saturday Running Sessions – all day Saturday running sessions are now taking place regularly (normally DC on Dungog on the first Saturday and a general session on the third Saturday of each month) to give members that ‘operating at an exhibition feel’. It will also give members a chance to work in co-operative teams to keep the action going and reduce those periods of ‘no trains running’ which puts the exhibition visitors off. Last but not least, it will give members the opportunity to check the performance and reliability of their trains before putting them on public show.
