Aln Valley Railway
In a press release, AVR Trust Chairman Martin Robinson said: "We are absolutely delighted to have reached this important milestone in the restoration of the railway. Everybody involved has worked tremendously hard to achieve this, but there is still a huge amount of work still to done, especially if we are to hit our target dates. Our first works contract has already been let to a local Alnwick firm. However, we need more volunteers for everything! All offers of help will be very welcome."
