While we as a group are not building a steam locomotive at this time we welcome any individual or group who either is building or has built a 1.5" gauge locomotive to join our group. While we are currently under construction of phase three of the railway it would be unfair to invite guests from far places to run on a railway that is still under construction without them knowing this. We have, however been operating since September of 1996 and have carried over 1000 passengers. During Christmas we operated when the temp was above -20 degrees C. Apart from some ice problems we did manage about eight trips a night. This summer we are holding five open houses. By structuring the events it allows us to concentrate on stage 3 of construction which has already commenced for the summer.
