2008 - a year to remember
Steam Railway magazine has let the cat out of the bag so now it's public - the S&D should be running again, for the public, by the summer of 2008. Track should extend to over half a mile by then.
Now is definitely the time to join the Trust if you're not yet a member. The workload in order to get running is heavy but manageable, new volunteers will be made more than welcome! Work up till now has mainly been preparation, building etc, as well as setting up administration systems ready for the big day, but from 2008 we'll need drivers, station staff, guards, signalmen and women, gardeners, retail and office staff. We expect membership to go through the roof once we're up and running!
On a personal note I'm planning to get married on the reopening day, with a reception up at the station!
