The new ride has been very successful with our passengers – lots of positive feedback. The 15 minutes ride is still seen as excellent value for only £1.50 and even more so with the possibility of a passing train.
The new signal box – “BARRY’S BOX JUNCTION” has added to the fun with signalman “TED” keeping a close eye on all that is going on. Lots of requests for party bookings – we will always accomodate these as long as we can find the volunteers to operate safely. We have had birthday parties, wedding parties AND a retirement party – – what next? We are still looking for volunteers – please ask at the ticket office on Sundays or telephone the numbers on our website.
Volunteers are needed for track maintenance, building maintenance, painting (buildings and locomotives), if you have a skill we will find you a job. We also need train staff on running days. Station Staff, Signal Box operators, Train Guards (leading on to Trainee Driver). Our steam engine is yet to arrive. After a full test programme we will be able to offer steam train rides to the public by special ticket).
