ICRS Member Only Visits

Eastleigh Works, Saturday 9th September 2017:
You can still attend if you have not pre-booked by paying £15 on the gate. Please notify Trevor Roots on 07765337700 if you are attending. Remember this is MEMBERS ONLY but you can join on the day.

Everyone who has already notified their attendance should have either received a ticket or will pay on the gate. Arrival at the main gate should be between 13.30 and 13.45 at the latest so that the safety briefing can be given prior to starting your visit at 14.00. The £15 covers the normal visit fee (which Arlington donate to charity) and organising stewards. There will be no hog roast this year, as time is very limited and it was very expensive, hence the reduction in the fee. But for that you will get access to all areas until at least 16.00 and cab rides.

Locos available for cab rides will hopefully be 47818, 07007 & 08879. There will be an opportunity this year to drive one of the shunters as we will be offering 'Driver for a Fiver'.

Our range of books & sundties will be available to buy on the day along with drinks and snacks from our sales stand.

Preservation Railway Galas

Nene Valley Railway Autumn Diesel Gala, 13th-15th October 2017:
This Gala is the 60th Anniversary of the Brush Type 2, Class 31 with 7 locos attending. We will be attending with our sales stand over the 3 days at Wansford so come and see us.

Open Days (Railway Operating Companies)

Old Oak Common 111th Anniversary - 10.00-16.00, Sat 2nd Sep 2017:
Prior to the site being redeveloped for Crossrail, GWR is to host an event ‘Legends of the GWR’ to celebrate traction maintained at the depot. Tickets are now on sale only via http://oocopenday.com/tickets.html
There will be no tickets available on the gate. No children under 16 unless accompanied by an adult. There will be no parking available on site. They strongly advise using public transport as most spaces in local residential areas will be taken up by local residents. By rail either use Overground / Bakerloo Line to Willesden Jnct or Central Line to East Acton. Both are about a 10-15 min walk. Bus route 228 stops directly outside the depot entrance in Old Oak Common Lane. They are expecting two queues to form before the event opens. One will be going up the hill from East Acton, and the other will be going down the hill from Willesden Jnct. All profits will go to Place2Be, mental health support for children

We will be there with our sales stand so come and see us.
