The team at Apedale have spent the weekend preparing for the annual Big Weekend at he Apedale Valley Light Railway – this year christened the Stoke Steam Special. If can be be tidied, it’s been tidied, if it can be cleaned it’s been cleaned. One of our volunteers sat still for too long and ended up in a bin bag. These weekends have always been memorable, and we are sure next weekend will not disappoint. We have, for example, a record breaking collection of model railways, and for the hardened enthusiast, the last remaining parts of the rare Rhiwbach loco have been re-assembled (but don’t get too excited!). The photos are reminders of previous years – hopefully next weekend will also produce a set of nice pictures. As ever, get in touch here.
