Website Contact Issue

Published by Admin at 9:37 AM under Train Advice Notices

Hi all - last couple of contacts via this site have come through with invalid return email addresses.

The first one I put down to typos, but now there are two I a suspicious that the is a problem with the way the site records them.

 

If you have attempted to contact me or wish to correspond - please do so via the facebook page, as I no longer trust the website's email redirection.

 

Cheers

Website Moving!

Published by Chris Draper at 3:11 PM under

As most of you know this website has a lot less activity than it used to - both in terms of visitor numbers and posts by me. This is partly becuase I rarely use a normal computer these days (iPad and phone mostly) - and this site does not lend itself nearly so well to be administered that way.

 

Also most of my family and regular rail friends are lurking on Facebook - so this site is moving to Facebook - still accessable via this link:-

https://www.facebook.com/WinterCreekRailway/

 

All future updates will be appearing there from 21st June 2016

 

See you there!

Apologies for not posting for awhile. Busy moving accomodations and there has not been much hapening on the railway as a result.

 

Here's a couple of photos from this weekend and before. Will add a few more asap

November 15 Update

Published by Admin at 12:37 PM under

Been busy working on bits of my loco that arent very photogenic, and while Noel has been slowly dismantling & cleaning the Brit in prep for a new boiler certificate not much has been done on the railway - until this last couple of weekends. Pulled out the stops and cut-realigned and re-welded tracks 2 and 3 at the junction as well as completing the retaining wall - more of a cover really as the bank can hold itself up. Decided to do something a little different - using steel standards and boards to get an old rails and timber repair look. Think it has come out ok.

Safety Rules for a Private Railway

Published by Admin at 6:41 AM under

Yes I know it seems all a bit PC, but the Health and Safety situation in NZ has got to the point that if you are not seen to be guarding against idiot behaviour then you are very much liable. So I decided to put together a simple one-sheet set of rules for passsenger visitors, Drivers, Equipment Owners and adopt best practice. We were already doing this, now its just written down as proof of how we work.

Feel free to copy/borrow/use for your own railways as you see fit.
