This day is gives the families with special needs children an outing to which they can bring the whole family.

We have several sponsors who give products and support that help make the day a fun thing to do for the family.

The general public are also welcome.

Normal club hours of 11am to 4pm, weather permitting


Queen's Birthday Weekend 

Queen's Birthday day is the first Monday of June each year.

QBW is MLS's Open Weekend when we host visitors from other clubs.

The public can come and ride the trains and admire the various visiting locomotive's during the normal club hours of 11am until 4pm, weather permitting.

More locomotives means more choice when it comes to which engine to ride behind.

The dates for 2015 are Saturday the 30th, Sunday the 31st of May and Monday the 1st of June.

Visitors need to bring their locomotives; steam locos need a current boiler ticket issued by their home club, a ride car or two is helpful but not essential - and a bucket full of sun shine!

We offer a friendly welcome, good food, great company and a fun weekend.

Please let us know if you are coming so the catering staff can add your names to the pot.
