Sunday 13th May 2018 - Grand Opening
The grand opening of our new stations, "Ron's Halt" on the 7¼ track and "Meriton East" on the high-level track took place on Sunday 13th May 2018. Thanks to some wonderful weather, a lot of hard work by HMES members and enthusiastic support from members of the public, the event was a great success.
