Frimley and Ascot Locomotive Club has open days when visiting clubs are invited to run their locomotives on our track. Once the date of the next open day has been decided, the details will be posted on this site.

The general guidelines and logistics for open days are as follows:

The site and track will be open from 10 am on meeting dates.

For club events lasting two days or more, campers and caravans will be able to park overnight (camping by the general public is not permitted). Please contact us in advance if you wish to stay overnight, as we need to advise the Park Management.

Park gates will be closed at sunset.

There is a toilet in the carriage shed (select the "Location" link above for information about other facilities).

Carriages are available but please bring your own driving trucks.

Supplies of coal, oils and mains water are available. Facilities include raised steaming bays, 12V and 24V DC blower power supplies, compressed air and an unloading bridge.

Owners of steam locomotives must have for inspection a valid boiler certificate prior to running.

When night running, front and rear lamps must be fitted to the loco/train.

NB: Wheels must comply with the standards shown below to avoid track damage. All wheels will be checked on site and if not in compliance shall not be permitted on the track. Wheels to standards set by Martin Evans/Tubal Cain and the 7 1/4 G Society are acceptable - e.g. the 7 1/4 G back to back is nominally 6.8 inches in the first case but the 7 1/4 G Society of 6.75 inches minimum is acceptable, as shown below. A detailed wheel profile can be downloaded here.

The standard requires flanges to pass through this template which is not to scale:
