Hello everyone, just a quickie to say that the GWSR’s gala on the 24th – 26th of May is fast approaching, and the timetable has now been released here, listing all the things to do, including tours of the C+W workshops. If you’re there, do stop by and take look around, I’ll be there for all of Sunday and Monday and Saturday afternoon (at least before the evening ticket comes into effect at 15:45 anyway!)
Also the contract for repairing Bridges to Broadway has been placed, but there is still £99,000 left to raise so it’s not all plain sailing yet. once the bridges are repaired, mos other things are in place ready for track laying, ballasting and signalling equipment to be installed. The current target for getting to Broadway is 2018, let’s hope we can make it!
