The 2013 Gala at this lovely little railway was excellent. A sensible approach for accommodating enthusiasts was to sell photo permits for those who wished to station themselves along the line with hi-vis vests to be worn.
There were two visiting steam locomotives and three of the home-based steam locomotives running. Also on display were three locomotives for restoration.
