    It has always been on the MPD roster as being a private charter. I cant think why some people had it down as footplate experiences, it will be a while before we do them up Cauldon.

    I think the confusion is because of the website it say's FPX 29th Jan 2011 http://www.churnet-valley-railway.co.uk/main/footplate.php The Wine/dine up to Cauldon has been down since December 2010 I believe I was told :)

    It's shown as a footplate experience on the 2011 running dates published on the members section of the website.

    As this thread is for the Cauldon Lowe reopening gala which was several months ago, does it still need to be a "sticky"?
