PUBLIC RUNNING – Cancelled

Unfortunately we must advise that public running days will be cancelled while repairs to the track and site are carried out. For the third time since December 2021 the site has been flooded and once again there is significant damage to the track with much of the ballast again washed away. We will commence repairs once the site has dried out enough for us to safely access the site.

We will resume public running as soon as we can. Watch this site for updates.

Children under five ride free but must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Remember fully enclosed footwear is essential to ride the trains, thongs and sandals are not OK

Price Increase

Reluctantly we have made the decision to increase the price for rides. The ever increasing costs that everyone faces every day are also impacting on the running costs of the club.

As of the 3rd of July running day the ride price will increase to $3.00 per ticket or 4 for $10.00. We do apologise for the increase but it is necessary if the club is to continue to operate.

Ipswich City Council Support

The club wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Mayor Teresa Harding and all the Councilors for grants received by the club. The Council has very generously provide from Councilor Discretionary Funds an amount of $1286.40 for the purchase of paints and materials to assist with site maintenance and restorations.

The Council has also provided an additional grant of $2000 from the Covid 19 Ipswich Community Operational Support Funding Program to help with our operational costs, this will help offset the losses the club has experienced due to the lack of income during the past 18 months.

All members sincerely thank the Ipswich City Council for the assistance provided to the club, it does really make a difference to small non profit organisations such as our.

Thank you Ipswich City Council
