The Health & Safety Executive has withdrawn support for HSG216 which was published in 2002. As a result a new group, Passenger Carrying Miniature Railway Safety Group (PCMRSG), has been established with the objective of drafting a new guide for the safe operation of passenger carrying miniature railways.
This group presently includes 10¼” Gauge Railway Society, 7¼” Gauge Society, Midland Federation of Model Engineers, Southern Federation of Model Engineering Societies, Northern Association of Model Engineers, Britain’s Great Little Railways and manufacturers/suppliers of passenger carrying miniature railway equipment.
After much consultation with the HSE a new document (HS2020) has been produced and is available for download here as a PDF, or if you prefer hard copies can be purchased from the NAME Secretary.
