Documents dealing with COVID-19 measures.

With the lifting of the legal requirements for Covid precautions, the following changes are made to our own Covid control measures.

In line with the NYMR, at Deviation Shed, where control measures were in place they will remain, but are now recommendations rather than a requirement. Similarly for the control measures applicable to travelling in the NELPG van. Following them will be a matter for individual judgement, but please do so whenever practicable.

For Fort William and the Jacobite, with the withdrawal of the K1 from the service, the NELPG control measures are now redundant and are themselves withdrawn. For those who have agreed to help with Ian Riley's locomotives, they will have to comply with his own/WCRC control measures, bearing in mind that the controls in Scotland are different to those in England.

We currently have no locomotive at Carnforth. If that situation changes we will need to check with WCRC what changes they might have made, and reflect those accordingly.

Irrespective, as has been emphasised, the pandemic is not over, so please continue to take care and keep safe.
