Why would the NVR want one when they have the more interesting Swedish Railcars there anyhow?
Not official policy AFAIK but some volunteers seem keen on the idea and it's they who have started the idea. Classic WIBN if you ask me.
A pacer in Peterborough seems appropriate. Both are run down and a bit s**t.
Point of order: Such views weren't exactly uncommon, concerning anything steam powered, back at the dawn of our movement. Future generations will likely see things differently ..... and may even conclude we were all barking mad!
Totally agree, the Swedish railcar is a unique selling point for the railway and they should use that to there advantage.
Another WIBN would be a continental day later in the year with the Slask, Tinkerbell (once her overhaul is complete) and the Railcar!
The Nene Valley Railway is to re-open the refreshment kiosk at its Overton station this weekend, according to The Railway Hub: https://www.therailwayhub.co.uk/11646/nene-valley-railway-to-re-open-overton-refreshment-kiosk/
The Nene Valley is in luck. It seems they have been awarded £47,000 for the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
And the Overton station kiosk will be open again this coming weekend...
Overton kiosk remains open at weekends - if you're in the Ferry Meadows area please help the railway while enjoying some refreshments.
Initial re-opening planned to be simple Thomas hauled runs from Wansford to Yarwell and back on weekends 25th/26th July and 1st/2nd August. Details to follow, but will involve pre-purchase only and allocated seating.
Good news that the NVR is taking tentative steps towards re-opening. Hope everything goes well and we can get back to using 34081 again. She’s been sat idle for far too long.
