May 2018

Other than the minor flooding at the end of the month it has been a fairly quiet at the Railway with routine maintenance and developments on-going

Our engineers have been putting a lot of effort into No. 6, a freight engine now being decked out in Freight Grey livery with striped yellow and black safety markings

As part of the upgrade to our communications it is planned to link Brogdale Central, the main signal box and the yard by telephone before moving onto the block control system

New staff have been taken through their training as guards and signalmen

For those who want something different the Railway offers trips for wedding parties as well as offering kids parties on a Sunday and school trips during the week- subject to availability. Details and contacts are on our website

DIYers, engineers, signalmen, guards/drivers are more than welcome to join our Railway Society. If you’d like to see what we can offer then contact us via our website to arrange a tour of the railway estate- or just visit on a Sunday and take it from there.
