This weekend (22nd/23rd September) the ColneValley Railway will be taking part in the annual Railways On The Air event.
This usually takes place every year on the weekend closest to the 27th September. This date celebrates the anniversary of the first steam powered passenger railway which took place on 27th September 1825 - the first passenger train ran on a line in the North East of England from Stockton to Darlington.
Members of the Braintree and District Amateur Radio Society (BADARS) will be at the Railway on both days, connecting with members at preserved railways all around the country.
