Interesting goings on at the Railway
Tractor and Farming Day, September 2017
Septembers Tractor and Farming themed open day has now come and gone, a little over cast weather wise but no less enjoyable.
On the Railway we had Eigiau, Katie and Helga in steam with diesels Bredgar and Milsted. The Day was also the first steaming of the Garrett Traction engine in a few years.
Teddy Day, August 2017
Our ‘Teddy Bear’ open day was very popular with the younger visitors, with so many well dressed teddies in the ‘Best Dressed Teddy’ competition this year choosing winners among them was tricky. Well done to all who entered.
In steam this open day was Katie as this years ‘Teddy Express’ along with Eigiau and Helga, and diesels Bredgar and Milsted running the mixed trains.
Classic and Vintage Car Day, July 2017
The sun was shining for us yet again, this years Classic and Vintage Car day had a large turn out with a very mixed lot of visiting cars.
In steam this time was Lady Joan, Helga and Eigiau. The day was the first back in service for Eigiau since completion of her 10 year boiler overhaul.
Blue Bells Open Day, May 2017
Blue Bells Day (so named for the blue bells which are in flower at this time of year) turned out to be another great day.
We had Lady Joan and Helga in steam with diesels Bredgar, Milstead and simplex Bicknor running. There was also a display from the Vintage Horticultural and Garden Machinery Club and a visiting steam car and lorry.
