MUSEUM OPENING DATES

It has been brought to our attention that information published in The Railway Magazine in December and January under the heading "Heritage Diary - where to go for steam and classic traction in Jan and Feb" erroneously states that the Museum is open throughout this period.

The information has been corrected in the February issue.

Museum opening dates for 2014 are now confirmed as follows:-

Half-term holidays - Saturday 15 to Sunday 23 February 2014
2014 season opening - Wednesday 15 March 2014
Season's End - Sunday 2 November 2014

Check the Museum website for full details.

... on the Amberley Museum Narrow Gauge Railway

2 foot gauge volunteer

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to Amberley, not just on the railway but generally.
Ideally new volunteers should already be 2 foot gauge, like the one illustrated, but our workshop
facilities have the means to regauge suitable candidates if necessary - even from standard gauge!

Contact information is given at the foot of this page.
