Track Information

 

The Society has an outside elevated track in the grounds of Hurworth Grange.
Our members are able to use the main track when they so desire.
We also carry out public running on special occasions with our portable track.

The steaming bays are radial to a swing section of the track which also allows access to the centre of the track. There is an electric scissor lift available to enable heavy engines to be transferred between vehicles and the track.
