Progress Saturday 15th June 2019

Dear all,

It was a day of records and firsts today as we had our busiest ever day on the trains. It was the first time we had fielded two rakes of Mark 1 coaches (albeit with a DMU centre car interloper on one), the first time we had 4 steam locomotives in steam and the biggie - the first time two steam trains have passed each other in the 152 year history of the line.

There were many happy visitors who enjoyed their day despite the weather and thank you to all the volunteers for their hard work in putting on a good show.
