Recent News:
Mike and Yvonne Whiteaker gave a presentation on the L&B to the Narrow Gauge Railway Society meeting at Malvern Link on Friday, 11 October 2013. The meeting was well attended by about 30 members of the NGRS.

The presentation was in two parts, the first covering the history of the original railway and the second covering the revival and our future plans.  The presentations were very well received with the plans for future expansion and the heritage coaches attracting much interest.

Three weeks later on Friday, 1st November, Mike and Yvonne braved torrential rain to journey into the wilds of Shopshire to deliver the same presentation to the Bishops Castle Railway Society at Bishops Castle. The society is dedicated to keeping alive the memory of the Bishops Castle Railway and maintains a small museum in the town. Despite the weather, about 20 members attended and again the presentations were very well received.

For those who are interested in unusual railways and oddities, it’s worth checking out the society’s website.
