    From the website today.

    "With such a quantity of snow falling and with the advent of ice, we need to perform a number of safety related tasks which we are unable to undertake with staff unavailable. We therefore regret to announce that we will NOT be running any train services this weekend"

    They also indicated that the phone service will probably only be fully operational from next Monday 11th.

    The same goes for the Bluebell and the West Somerset Railway too. I expect that others will follow suit.

    On the WSR they suspended a PW job at Crowcombe and left the PW train with a Class 25 on it parked in the platform as the weather was that bad on Wednesday.
