LOTS OF MOVEMENT
With all the work planned some major shunting has had to take place. The Newmans siding area has had to be cleared. This meant re-siting the Travelling Post Office over near the entrance to keep it accessible, and putting the goods van, Rusty, a works carriage and the old Gresley carriage in other sidings.
Once the tracks were clear a gang of volunteers dismantled the track and stored it.
Lots more work will be done in this area over the coming months.
The re-development of the site is under way.
The new Brewster Centre now has a roof and looks quite impressive. We have re-opened part of the original museum to give visitors an insight into the history of the CVR.
The Miniature Railway has re-opened a section of track, this will eventually be a much longer line.
Work on the new roadway and entrance is also taking place
