The Start of Something Big


It's been lovely weather in Yorkshire this week! The other evening we decided to make the most of it and go for Fish and Chips at Wetwang! Sadly Small Person fell asleep in the back of the car so missed out and we ate them in the car!

Wetwang was, of course, on the Malton and Driffield Railway; a part of which is currently being revived by the Yorkshire Wolds Railway. After we'd had a tea we drove home going via Fimber. I knew their first vehicle had arrived, a Mark 1 full brake which will form the centrepiece of an exhbition centre, but I didn't know their first loco had too! It's ex Trackwork, a rail contractor in Doncaster, and must be the first locomotive on the line for fifty five years? Quite a historic moment I think.
