Our Saturday working day this week saw considerable activity and a healthy turn-out of willing volunteers. Whilst we sat in the Apedale Heritage Centre at lunchtime consuming tea and oatcakes (the staple diet in these parts), our Chairman Phil showed us part of a DVD he is preparing showing the final days at our former Cheadle Hulme site and the early progress in constructing the railway at Apedale. It is now nearly ten years since we vacated Cheadle and it seems longer! The video (see photos) showed the final open day with a good variety of rolling stock on show, followed by some shots of track recovery using the former Ashton-under-Lyne Sewage Works Hudson locomotive “Chaumont”. The DVD will be available to buy later in the year.
