On Wednesday evening members visited The Golden Valley Light Railway for an open evening which featured The Ashover Coach No 4, superbly restored by Barry Lynam, being pulled by a Kerr Stuart “Joffre” class 0-6-0T no.3014 locomotive.

Thanks to our colleagues from GVLR for a very memorable evening !

News update by Mike Lawton.

Evening all.  Steve and Andrew and I turned up and we went for a gander at Pete’s trains (not that exciting) then went for a brew (very exciting). After getting back, the main aim was to get all the pile of stone shifted. Following another tea break and lunch, I had to leave Andrew and Steve to it. Later this afternoon I got a message from Andrew to say all the stone had been shifted! Well done Andrew and Steve!!!

we are now pretty much all set to take delivery of a storage container, put all of our clobber inside it, and secure the site with new fencing.

Hopefully that helps set the picture a bit more, and it has been tremendous progress so far!!! Well done all!!!
