Gileston Light Railway Summer News

Finally an update for the railway!! 21.05.2018
So here we are, Summer is here and the railway
has woken up again! First things first, clear the
line. Here are several photos showing the line
being cleared of weeds using a short weed train
to transport all the weeds and clippings.Next the fishplates all needed checking and
tightening, any loose rails adjusting and a good
walk around to ensure all is ready for the first run
of the year!Finally at the end of the day I was able to sit back
and cruise around through Gileston and down to
Willow View along all of the line. More to follow
​​​​​​​soon including info on our next OPEN DAY!!!!
