    Yes I am an active volunteer
    A post on the US Narrow Gauge Discussion Group forum pointed to this well made video charting the restoration and inaugural run of the C&TS's vintage train
    Okay, it's a bit 'hammed up' for a general audience and obviously sponsored by Kobalt Tools but what an achievement. I'd be there now but for Covid - grrr....

    Wow! What an achievement. That launch occured last autumn (sorry - I mean fall:)). It would seem that the C&TS is going from strength to strength. In the last fortnight they have just celebrated their 50th anniversary with what can only be described as the gala of the decade. Concentrating on Victorian era 3ft gauge locos they have brought in two Baldwin balloon stacked wood burning locos from the 1870s as well as the recently restored C&S 4-6-0 No.20 from the Collarado Railroad museum. These together with 168 and the semi resident 2-8-0 No.315 (running as 425) created a spectacle of narrow guage railroading not seen for decades. If this is your thing check out the abundence of footage on YouTube - you will not be disappointed.
