ICRS Member Only Visits

Long Marston: Sat 9th Jun 2018: BOOKING OPEN
We have arranged to attend the only event planned at Long Marston in 2018. The charge is £15 payable on the day but you MUST inform us in advance that you are attending and ONLY if you are 100% certain. If that is so, please contact our President, Simon ((see page 2 in TRACKS for details) by the cut-off point of the 13th May 2018 so we can provide the organisers with a list of attendees.

Please arrive no later than 10.00 with the aim to start at 10.30. We will be there from 09.30 so if you arrive earlier you will then have time to pay and buy books / sundries which we will have available. Yard lists will be available for sale on the day from the organisers for you to check off stock, though we will as in 2017 provide a detailed list in TRACKS from members own sightings. Coffee and cake will be available from around midday but feel free to bring refreshments. The site must be clear by 16.00, so that is a decent amount of time to wander freely around the site, however you must adhere to the rules below and respect this opportunity.

There is parking on site with access off Station Road. Programme your Sat Nav with either CV37 8PL or CV37 8RP or if like me you prefer maps, Station Road runs just south of Long Marston village between the minor road to Mickleton and the B4632 Mickleton to Stratford-upon-Avon. The entrance is on the south side of Station Road at the Long Marston end near the ‘The Greenway’ cycle path.

For those who went in 2017 you will know it is a big site (130 acres) and with more stock than ever it is a lot of walking, several miles up and down sidings. However the organisers are hoping to utilise the resident DMU to provide trips around the perimeter track. Also for those that missed out last year, remember to visit the secure Compound as that is where most of the stored locos are. We will no doubt be restricted to an hour inside as previously and you will need it all !

WCR Carnforth, Sat 11th Aug & 13th Oct 2018:
2018 visits now fully booked We will have further visits in 2019, so keep an eye out in TRACKS or on the website.

Eastleigh Works, Sat 8th Sep 2018: Details to be advised soon.
