September 2018. Trains at our running day - all 7 1/4" except for 42105.


Vice President Ted driving Keith's Jumbuck


Logging truck


Leal's NSWGR X200-class rail tractor


President John driving his 5" gauge NSWGR 421-class engine.


Leal driving a full load with a little help from behind


A little help from behind.


Towards the end of the day when the crowd was thinning we practiced running to the far end of the grounds. Here Leal's radio-controlled engine is running around its train which is waiting on one leg of the triangle. Our first project is to fix up the triangle so that trains can reverse direction without detaching the engine.


At the party area the engine has run around the train using the turntable and is ready to take the train back to the station and on towards the far end. Between the camera and that motley crew is the north end of our trestle bridge. Our second project is to repair the bridge so that trains can reach the far end without reversing.


Driver under instruction!


July 2018. At our Annual General Meeting we appointed a new board. The directors are now Les Banhidi, Ted Williams, John Gordon, Kris Macey (treasurer) and Tom Fink (secretary). The positions of President and Vice-President will be chosen from the directors at a future meeting. Since then we have sorted ot the following positions: President- John Gordon; Vicepresident- Ted Williams; Treasurer- Kris Macey; Secretary- Tom Fink and Director- Les Banhidi.
May 2018. Another good day. On the 7 1/4" gauge track we had the club diesel and two members brought their steam engines and one brought his diesel. The club's 5" gauge diesel also ran. [pictures to come]. Passengers were still queueing to ride at 4pm but the trains kept running until everyone was carried.

Also, out of a thousand tickets sold, someone said that they did not know that they had to wear shoes on the trains. There are plenty of signs on the grounds and these web pages and all our publicity are littered with footwear warnings. However, just to reinforce the message we have added these new green banners.


December 2017. A routine running day, in spite of the forecast the weather stayed dry until after we had packed up at the end of the day.


Three engines, plenty of happy passengers!


Winter Uniform For any member who wants to buy a black, fleece-lined jacket please contact Adam urgently. The jackets cost $45 each and include the club logo enbroidered on the front. (17 June 2017)


June Running Day. While we were sorting out some minor problems with our other trains we connected a double length train behind our yellow 41-Class engine. This was a good test of our drivers' skills in starting and stopping a heavy train. Later more engines became available and the long train was divided. Our visitors seemed to enjoy the activity and later we received two messages of thanks including photos or movies (in addition to the usual Facebook comments). Well done to all concerned. Here is the long train:

Robert and his Engine. For some reason people at our last members' meeting asked for a picture of Robert and his engine. Here he is practice driving at the track last year.


Train detection. Our rails are welded to metal sleepers so we connot use the same track circuits used on full-sized railways. So we are sometimes asked how our signals know where the trains are. Here is our solution. It is electrically simple but mechanically robust. These detectors have survived several floods.

Progress. As we work on repairing the trestle we find more work that needs to be done. Most of the trestle bents have been removed to expose footings buried in silt. About half have been exposed so far.


These footings were all above ground level when built. The silt build up has been removed to expose the footing tops in preparation for replacement of the bent structures..


Temporary drain in place to allow access to the route of the trestle.


A Railway at Home? From time to time visitors comment that they would like to have a train to ride at home. Our idea was that a short standard answer would help, however the resulting paper is no longer short! For any of our local readers thinking of laying track at home please note that the paper makes allowance for our American friends and mentions several gauges. However, if you stick to 5" or 7.25" gauge track you will be able to join a club like ours and run your rolling stock on a big layout as well as at home. The document is still a work in progress. As usual, any comments and suggestions to us at web @ narara . cjb . net.

For ideas on getting started with a ridable railway at home or on your property please see this paper. (Opens in a new window)


Club Secretary Unfortunately Ian has had to step down. Damon Kinkade has been appointed secretary. We wish Ian all the best for a speedy recovery.


October 2016

A run along the back straight to keep the rails clear until the we can fix the bridge. Passenger Natsumi took this video, and no, we don't really travel at that speed.

Our running day was full of the usual happy crowd. Tim Bolger came back the next day and took this video with his drone. It shows the results of all the hard work our members put into the track and grounds.


September 2016

Here are some photos from the last three months. They are not yet arranged properly but they do give a feel for the atmosphere at the track.

New Phone Number For various reasons the club now has a new public phone number for table bookings. It is 0479 041 321.
Newsletter. From September 2015 Ian Svenson is now editing and producing our newsletter. Here arw the first issues:

September 2015

October 2015

January 2016


ADVANCE BOOKING OF TABLES RESUMES

We are pleased to announce that we can again take advanced bookings for tables in the party area. Prepayment is still necessary before a table number will be allocated, but this can now be arranged by phoning the club on our new (February 2016) number (0479 041 321). If there are still tables available at the start of a running day then visitors wanting a table can come to the booking office to pay for a table and then go over and choose any available table in the party area. There will be signs to show which are still available.

Thanks to Melissa for taking up the challenge of managing these bookings.


New Board elected

At our AGM held on the 19th of September 2015 we elected the following board:

  • Greg Rowland, president;
  • Leal Brack, vice-president;
  • Kris Macey, treasurer;
  • Robert Holland, secretary (subsequently resigned in favour of Ian Svenson);
  • Wayne Sinclair, director.

    (Board photo to follow in due course)


    TABLES CAN ONLY BE BOOKED ON THE DAY

    We are also no longer taking advanced bookings for tables at running days. Visitors wanting a table can come to the booking office to pay for a table and then go over and choose any available table in the party area. There will be signs to show which are still available.

    The reason for this change is that since we have stopped taking new party bookings (due to our bridge rebuilding work) we have been overwhelmed by people phoning to book tables. It has also been difficult to enforce payment in advance. We hope that the new system of arrive-pay-select will be fairer for everyone. Once the swamp trestle is reopened and running the full circuit is restored then the party station will be reopened. At that time we expect to be able to take party and table bookings again. Special and private running days are not affected by this policy. Table bookings as at 3 August 2015 will be honored. We expect that we shall be back up to full capacity early next year.


    Bridge Work. We are rebuilding the north end of the long bridge. As at 23 July 2015 the deck has been removed to allow work on the beams (and trestles if necessary).


    PARTIES FULLY BOOKED

    Sorry everyone, but due to reduced capacity until we fix the flood issues we shall not be able to take any more party bookings until further notice. Party bookings as at 25 May 2015 will be honored. We expect that we shall be back up to full capacity by this time next year.

    Tables are fully booked for the next month or so, but we still have vacancies later in the year so it is worth calling to check.


    April 2015 Floods. Coastal NSW suffered serious rain and wind storms this month (April 2015). Our track was flooded and when the water receded parts of the track and lawns were left covered in silt. Several trees were blown over in the party area and others across the track. Most machinery was spared, however some of our newer riding cars were saturated.

    Members cleaned up the top part of the track opposite the clubhouse, including the main station and the party station in anticipation of running on 2nd May. However heavy rain overnight washed more silt onto the station and saturated the lawns, particularly the party area so this day had to be cancelled. A few sunny days and we shall have the top section running again but it will take us a while to dig out the far end (roughly from the level crossing, through the bush by the creek, down through the new dish drain and back to the junction).

    At this stage we don't know if the far end will be ready for the June run but if the weather is fine then we shall be running the top section, including the party area and station.

    Visitors who had booked tables or parties for the washed-out running days in April and May will be given the option of a refund or a new booking.

    The following pictures were taken on the 2nd of May. They show how much material is carried by flood water. We shall be just running the upper section (including the station) for a while.


    Water under the bridge, three weeks after the April floods. The track here is undamaged and we shall be running on it during our next running days.


    April flood damage, looking north. On the right there is the 7 1/4" main line buried under the silt. On the left are the emergency connections between the small "party" loop that we usually run around before going out on the swamp trestle and the 5" and 7 1/4" main lines.


    April flood damage, looking south. Once the silt dries we can finish digging out the track.


    The long trestle bridge is usually above water, but not always!


    We were able to buy some second-hand platform seats from the real railways. Just before the floods some were installed in place of the old telephone poles for seating in the viewing area. We have a few more for the hillside but these will have to wait until we finish with the flood repairs.


    1st and 2nd of August 2015.

    Tunnel. Here, for no particular reason, is a view of our storage tunnel which is empty at the moment.



    Uniforms


    Heather and Wayne model our new uniform shirts

    After some years we have work shirts available again. These are in stock now and can be bought at club meetings, or by arrangement with Bec. The shirts incorporate most requests made by members:
    • Base colour is blue, traditional for hiding oil stains
    • Includes the club logo so public know who to talk to on running days
    • Includes some high visibility material so we can also look like modern workers
    • Made from modern quick drying fabric
    • Made in a variety of sizes from anorexic to obese tight to comfortable
    • Price only $20.
    ... and they say that a camel is a horse designed by a committee!

    And the webmaster wishes to apologize to anyone who thought that the above is anything but a joke intended to advertise the good news that we now have uniform available. Be assured that he has been waiting some years for a CCSM shirt and will buy one for himself at the next club meeting. Indeed he would have bought one at the last meeting had the clubhouse been open.


    Special Extra Run for our Gosford City HO Scale Friends. Here are a few photos taken on the day. Thanks to all our visitors from other clubs whose engines helped move the crowd.










    Short North Returns After a five-year gap, we have a new editor for Short North. The February 2015 edition is available
    here to view, download or print (This is 2MB file so it might be cheaper toview it on your PC rather than your phone.)


    September Washed Out Unfortunately we had to cancel our regular running day on the September father's day weekend. The ground near the station was quite wet and continuing showers meant that it was unlikely to dry before opening time. This was a pity becuase the grounds are in particularly good shape at the moment. For example here is a plum tree is in blossom, seen during our ground inspection on Saturday morning.

    Website Cleanup To make this page load more quickly we have split this "scrapbook" page between 2009 and 2010. The older enties are now here. Also we have removed obsolete calendars for years past.
    2014 Birthday Run Follow-up Some of us visit the Railpage forums from time to time. We came across this interesting post from someone who, although obviously a rail minded person interested in models, chose to book a table for his family just as any other member of the public. Here is an extract from the thread at Railpage. He posts there as "KRviator".

    Mini-Me turned 2 yesterday and we decided to have his party at the Narara miniature railway given his love of all things rail. Just what I wanted to do on my days off, though...Go to a train place...But anyways. A fun day was had, with an administrative error giving a bit of grief midway through but still, it wasn't enough to ruin the day.

    CCSM has about a dozen tables arranged off to one side of the grounds for parties and the like, $10/table, great value, plenty of sun and/or shade and plenty of space. However, these tables are numbered and those assigned to groups are placarded with a Reserved {NAME} {TIME} sign. But...These details were left blank on every sign, so when the KRviatrix laid claim to two unoccupied tables they weren't actually the ones assigned to us. Our assigned tables were over yonder ---> so we had to move. Halfway through. OOps. Surprised Our stuffup, true, but an entirely avoidable one if the signs were labelled as to who the tables were for. The rightful owners couldn't have been ruder about it if they'd tried. No doubt she was a Mercedes-driving yuppie from Terrigal called Fiona...Evil or Very Mad

    The only other criticism I have was with a dozen tables, and perhaps 150 people having various parties, there were no bins in the area, all rubbish had to be carried out and the first bins visible were the general waste bins near the kiosk, both well and truly full given the great turnout. Another bloke and I eventually found the wheelie bins, but a couple in the party area might be a good idea.

    Other than that, the layout was good, much bigger than I was expecting, and quite a scenic trip. I was hoping for a couple of heavy haul locos of some description given the invitational tomorrow, but it wasn't to be had. Oh well. Those that did run - and there was plenty of traffic on their little network - did an admirable job of ferrying their passengers around.Smile

    So, on with the photos!

    All on, Driver!


    Sticks Off! Let's GO!

    My reply:

    Thanks KR,

    It's not often that we have a Railpage moderator as a mystery shopper to test our service. There is always scope for improvement, even in a volunteer organisation. I'll bring your post to the attention of our committee.

    Thanks also for sharing your photos. Later in the day we had several visitors running steamers on the 5" gauge track but no big 71/4" engines this year. In previous years we have had Bluegum or Silverton visit.

    At night we arranged for the 5" trains to run in a figure-of-eight pattern while the 7 1/4" ran the usual big and small loops. This operation required bi-directional train order working over the long swamp trestle in the dark. There were no accidents and we had a bit of realism driving into the lights of on-coming trains on the parallel track. Well done to Leal Brack for setting up the safe working system last night.

    For anyone not yet familar with Railpage, we recommend visiting it sometimes. Although it ia mainly for discussions about 12" to the foot scale it does also have a forum for miniature railways. The extract above is a sample of the frank and informative discussions there.
    New to the track! May 2014.

    New member Shane brought his grandfather's train to try on our track. He fitted a camera to record the trip.

    The amazement on the faces of these children should keep the hobby in the family for another generation.

    Umina Childcare - Special Run. Saturday the 29th of March saw about 150 children, parents and friends come up for a picnic and private running day at the club. Two engines and eight carriages were in continuous use.


    Picnic at the Station


    Off into the Jungle


    March club meeting - business as usual except the bad news that vandals had attacked the club house and pulled down the railings around the verandah and some rainwater pipes. Not only was this a hazard to visitors but there will be some cost in repairing it all safely. If anyone remembers seeing anyone or anything unusual around the grounds in the last 10 days (probably Friday 7th March) please contact us on 0415 083 907 or direct to Gosford Police (quote incident number E54526658).


    The railings put up out of reach for now, they were found on the ground.

    Testing a couple of vehicles that you won't see on a public running day:


    Wayne's Fairmont-inspired section car almost complete and Tom's muck truck.

    How to build a simple live steam model locomotive, from scratch. The International Brotherhood of Live Steamers is publishing a series of how-it-was-done books on their revived web-site. Here is the first:
    Jan-Eric Nyström's Baldwin 3003
    Facebook. For those wondering what is going on, the club has rationalised its facebook presence.

    There is now one official page which is available for anyone to see and will be used by the club for announcements about rain cancellations etc. and also by the public to share comments and pictures of past events that they have enjoyed. For requests for changes to the fixed information or page design please contact our secretary who can make these changes.

    The old facebook group has now been made private for members. For the time being it is there for members to share internal news and technical comment etc. The club website now points to the public fb page rather than to the fb group.

    Apologies to those of you (those of us!) who are not facebook people but apparently fb is important to some. (5 March 2014)

    2014 CALENDAR and for later years please see our new (almost) perpetual calendar here.

    Our ordinary routine provides a public running day on the first Saturday of every month.

    Additional running days can usually be arranged for schools and other party groups.

    Members meet at the meeting room at the track at noon on the third Saturday of every month. Most other Thursdays and Saturdays are work days for members.

    April 2013 work day
    Heavy rain last week so the Narara Creek is carrying a fair load of yellow silt. This eastern water dragon is admiring the reflections.

    The main job today was rebuilding the set of 7-1/4" points from the swamp trestle junction. Without these the trains don't get far.
    The points are now fitted ready for pneumatic operation at some future time. Meanwhile they will be worked by the old crank and rod system.

    Mick Farrel (one of our senior members) dropped in to say hello. He showed us this old photo taken inside the running shed at Eveleigh.


    Additional running days can usually be arranged for schools and other party groups.

    Members meet at the meeting room at the track at noon on the third Saturday of every month. Most other Thursdays and Saturdays are work days for members.

    Floods again. December 2011 saw heavy rain on the Central Coast. Narrara Creek rose and then receded leaving a layer of silt over much of the track. Here we are getting the track back up to standard ready for our January 2012 running day.

    With the summer months rapidly approaching, the lawns are starting to take off again. All members are asked to come to the grounds, even if not on a designated “work day” and assist where you have the time – even if it’s only for half an hour, the time all adds up.
    November 2010 Short North is here.

  • President: Greg Rowland
  • Vice-President: John Crowhurst
  • Secretary: Robyn Nutter
  • Treasurer: Norm Browne
  • Director: Ken Howells
    Other positions are appointed and will be published in the November and later issues of Short North.
    September Short North is here.


    Our new club loco will look like this.

    July Short North is out.
    5 June 2010 Running Day. It was raining everywhere else, but not at our track! There was only a small crowd today but those who came were rewarded by short queues to ride the trains. Hope to see you all at our next regular run on 3rd July.

    A scale brake van at the end of a 5" gauge train on the gauntlet track at the station.

    Newsletters available again on-line! Short North is back in production. The April 2010 issue is here, in pdf form so it will appear just like the printed copy, except now in full colour.

    March work day. The usual handful of members showed up to get the grounds pretty for the Easter running day. Unfortunately nobody had the key for the fuel locker so we just ran every machine until its tank was empty. Then we were able to get home for an early lunch. (hint to others: leave us the key, or top up all the tanks before you leave!)

    Naohiro-san from Japan dropped in to help. Here he is returning yet another empty mower to the collection.

    Mangroves. We think that we are the only club to have a mangrove swamp trestle bridge. Here is link to some backround to these interesting plants. (DPI mangroves information pamphlet)
    Gardening, railway style. Behind the scenes: an interesting operation,as recorded by Mitch here.
    February 2010 running day ... Slight rain in the morning so we decided to run as usual. Visitors were rewarded with a short queue for rides and a good variety of engines to see and ride. However at one stage two engines failed to proceed and the result was one very long train bringing everyone back to the station. Here is the movie:
