Volunteers' Queen's Award

Volunteers' Queen's Award

A superb achievement for all of the hardworking volunteers at our railway. 

GWR Trust chairman (and DMU driver) Glyn Cornish collected the award along with PLC chairman Alan Bielby.

47105 update

The long refurbishment work being undertaken on 47105 is progressing well inside the loco with a huge amount of effort being put into overhauling components and repainting. Dave Moorcraft is seen here working on some internal paneling. A lot of rotten steel work has been cut out and major repairs to the engine room floor area are being undertaken.
