An excellent day was had by all. Large crowds enjoyed the site on a beautiful sunny day. After a 12
months-long complete rebuild of its diesel engine, our Planet diesel locomotive was successfully started and driven into the up platform for the first time in six years and the team had their photo
taken! Visitors were able to climb into the cab and get the driver's eye view. The good times are back!
Thanks to the Bideford Bridge Trust for a grant to complete the restoration of our brake van. With the loco
and the brake van both on their way to completed restoration, could we be running our train in 2020? Watch this space!
