Churnet Valley Railway Gala

Churnet Valley Railway Feb Gala

Although the Duke of Gloucester couldn’t make it, the Churnet Valley Railway held a most successful Gala on the weekend of February 6th and 7th.  The weather, particularly on Saturday was very kind – even the sun put in an appearance!

Unfortunately due to a clash of dates, I couldn’t make it either, but recent converts to Heritage Railways have let me use some of their photographs.  This is a very small percentage of their work –very twitchy fingers!!

They were there from 9 till 5 and thoroughly enjoyed the day – well done Churnet Valley, especially after the late disappointment on the Duke’s absence.

The Churnet Valley is one of my favourite railways and, all being well, I shall be there later in the year.
