As a reminder, this Saturday, May 24th is the visit of the Kirklees Light Railway, for the Asperger’s Fundraiser. This is the first event since the major reshuffle behind the scenes, which will hopefully make everything run much smoother.
In attendance, will be Olly Owl. If visiting, remember to say hi!
Just a reminder, on July 31st, the Steam Scones event on the Talyllyn Railway, departing Tywyn Wharf at 7pm. Take a historic steam train trip up the line and return to Wharf for a fabulous 40’s themed evening, with scones and hot drinks available. There will also be traditional ale’s being served with a range of other snacks and drinks available. Tickets cost £20.
The locomotive will be No. 2 “Dolgoch”, built in 1866, by Fletcher Jennings. This is filling in for No. 1 “Talyllyn”, built in 1864,by Fletcher Jennings, due to its accident a couple month ago.
And finally, take a look at this masterpiece by Nick Harling, showing Sir Berkeley heading the Flyer.
“Guild of Railway Artist’s Associate, Nick Harling, agreed late last year to produce artwork featuring The Aspergers Flyer for our publicity department. After several scene suggestions, the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway’s Mythomes Tunnel was chosen to mark the Flyer’s birthplace without which the Flyer we know today would not have happened. The engine appearing in the artwork is the Vintage Carriages Trust’s Sir Berkeley to mark the behind the scenes work they have done to help out our team in establishing the Flyer. The work will be donated for display in the Trust’s Ingrow museum. We would like to thank Nick for his amazing efforts!”
