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.
Our 2017 season started with the Colne Valley at War event.
The weather was lovely, warm and dry and visitors came out in force to see re-enactors on site transporting the station area back to the 1940s.
