The May Bank holiday brought out the sun, the blossom and the families. We ran trains over the three day period much to the enjoyment of kids and parents alike. The next Bank Holiday is at the end of the month and again we expect to be running over the three days.
Plumleigh Station and signal box have been by-passed and it is now a storage yard. Passengers speed past on their way to the new apple orchards and plum tree nursery at the top of the loop.
Track and track side maintenance is continuing. Fishplates are being greased and expansion joints checked. The track has weeded and the trackside verges mowed.
As ever new volunteer staff are always welcome. We are particularly interested in trainee drivers, guards, engineers and platform staff. Come down to Brogdale on Wednesdays or Sundays (11-4) and make yourself known to staff. We can show you round and then hopefully talk you into joining us!
Trains are run every Sunday, the first at 11.00 am and the last around 4.00 pm and also during Brogdale festivals and Bank holiday weekends. See our web site for further details.
And finally, a reminder that we can be booked for parties, weddings and the like at very reasonable rates. We have already done 3 birthday parties with more lined up along with 2 weddings. Contact Mick on 01795 474211 for details or try the other contacts shown on this site.
