    Yes I am an active volunteer
    It is, I've been on the charter for the past three years but unfortunately can't go this year. If narrow gauge industrial steam in stunning scenery is your thing it's not to be missed. If it isn't go anyway and it then will be.

    Many thanks @Johnb and @Britfoamer

    Alpha will look superb at Threlkeld (image with thanks to Ellis Griffith Morey) and equally the rather lovely Diana

    We will also host a short session on Thursday evening as the loco's are steam tested . Excavator loading the skips arranged , hoping to have the steam shovel (rail mounted one) in operation as well
