Road steam rally maybe for 2018

Post  ejparrott on Fri 16 Jun 2017, 11:29 am

Morning all,

If I was to organise a Road Steam event based at Rugby Model Engineering Society, how many people would be interested in coming? We're just up the road from STW, we've got lots of camping space and lots of room for running around. Our main gate is on a quiet country road with some hills which would provide interesting road running, and there is a good local pub accessible. I'd probably arrange to have a 7.25" train running for the enjoyment of all.

Second question, if there's enough interest, what would make a good date and avoid clashing with other events? Third Sunday of the month is out as it's our Public Running day.

Road Steam Rally for 2018

Post  Heavyhaul on Fri 16 Jun 2017, 3:04 pm

Hi I am currently building a 4" scale Burrell Scenic Showmans engine, which I would've liked to have had finished by now, will certainly be ready for next years rally season all being well.
I would certainly like to attend the rally.

Regards
Steve (Heavyhaul)

Currently looking at 2nd weekend of August or first/second weekend of September depending on how the club committee feels about sharing a road steam event with our own 'members running' or having 4 events in 5 weeks. Needs expressions of interest though, otherwise it won't get organized at all

Potentially interested but as you say trying to avoid other rallies is the problem, for me its not long after a really hectic time where we are out most weekends over August and so its good to be at home to catch up on the gardening etc. Also its a 2.5hr trip for me if the traffic is OK.
Can only say pick a date and see what happens.
Oh and I'd have to be the black sheep with a model works agi Laughing Laughing
