 Running trains again at last. August 2021.
With the easing of Covid lockdown restrictions, on Saturday 14th August 2021 we were able to run trains for the first time since 2019. We were fortunate to have John Knight's amazing Shay in attendance and this is the outlook on the day.

 Permanent Way Maintenance. Autumn 2021.
During the autumn of 2021, Permanent Way maintenance has continued. In the background is a full size way of doing the job!


At the time of writing (New Year 2022) we should recently have taken delivery of a shipping container to be used as a permanent store for our equipment next to the track.

Running Dates for 2022

If there are no further Covid restrictions, we aim to be running trains on Saturdays again this year. A start date to the season will be posted when this has been finalised. Trains operate from around 11:00 a.m until about 15:30, weather permitting.
