SASMEE cares about your safety so please heed the following.
Our volunteers have appropriate training and are concerned for your safety. Please follow their directions at all times.
Enclosed footwear must be worn. You cannot wear any light, flimsy or open toed foot wear when riding on trains. This includes thongs, sandals and scuffs. Your TOES ARE IMPORTANT to us and should a carriage derail sound footwear will protect them.
This is SASMEE Policy and if you do not wear the correct footwear you will not be allowed to ride our trains.
Please avoid wearing loose flowing clothing, wraps and scarves; they can get caught up in the wheels and moving objects or parts. Ladies, tight skirts make it very difficult to sit astride our carriages and can cause our station staff some embarrassment (or amusement) as you try to sit down.
OUR STEAM LOCOMOTIVES EMIT SOOT, ASH AND HOT SPARKS
Please do not wear your Sunday Best as it may get soiled!
Please leave bulky bags and rucksacks with either friends or our station staff. Smaller bags should only be carried on your lap.
No photography, still or movie from trains (without written permission)
Persons taking photographs have recently caused derailments and injury was only narrowly avoided.
How to ride
Our riding carriages are of the sit astride type.
To board our carriages adults must step one leg right over the carriage, sit down and then place their feet on the foot board.
To ride all passengers must;
· Sit down, not stand up
· Keep their feet on the foot boards until directed to alight
· Not lean out
· Not reach out to anything or anybody
Adults please have both feet on the ground before getting off the carriages.
Please supervise your children and those in your party at all times.
Please ensure that there is one adult to travel with up to four children
Alcohol and safety do not mix. Please do not bring alcohol or consume it on site on public running days
Beach umbrellas and shelters
Please do not bring beach umbrellas or erect shelters on the site. In a wind gust these items can become lethal to others.
If you or your guest brought it please take it away with you. We do have rubbish receptacles on site but out of respect for our volunteers please restrict your use of these bin to minor items.
Please TAKE the bulk of UNCONSUMED FOODSTUFFS and gift wrappings HOME with you otherwise they will attract vermin or blow about our grounds.
Children are your responsibility.
St Johns Ambulance volunteers attend our public days and are available to offer assistance with first aid matters
