We were 50 years young in 2017!

We had a very special 50th Anniversary Gala on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of September, with lots of special attractions, including no less than six engines in steam!

The weekend, and its predecessor the Nearly Fifty Gala in August, were very well attended. We are very grateful to those who came to share the celebrations with us, and to the many people (members and non-members) who worked hard to make the events such a success.

Looking ahead, there is the potential for renewal and further development of the Railway. The way in which everyone pulled together to make 2017 special bodes well for the challenges of the future.

Meanwhile, here are some photos of the 50th Gala:
