ESSEX VINTAGE MOTORCYCLE CLUB

The Essex section of the VMCC have just spent five days based at the Railway again.  They camp on site and each morning the sound of lovely old bikes can be heard as they set off on a daily run.


FREIGHT TRAIN RUNNING

Guest loco Little Barford worked its first freight train at the Colne Valley Railway on Sunday 19th August.

A tube wagon has had some bench seating installed in it and it proved to be very popular on its frst outing

BUSY PEOPLE

Some of the members of Pressed Steel Heritage have been busy working on Class 121 trailer car W56287.

Whilst the seat cushions are being re-upholstered they have removed and repainted all the frames, making the most of the nice weather.
