We are currently closed to the public but intend to reopen on a date to be announced towards the end of March.
We will also be starting regular rides on our train on April 10th. We hope to see you there. Photo on the Home Page of the newly overhauled and repainted Planet operating at Bideford, with a video on the Gallery page.
The nameplate and numberplate from 34019 "Bideford", purchased by BRHC in March, are now on display at the Burton Museum & Art Gallery until the end of February, in conjunction with an exhibition about how the railways brought holidaymakers to Bideford in the 1950s.
