April 2021 - Part 1


During April a large amount of work has been carried out on the railway, much of it in preparation of service trains starting to run towards the end of May. The amount of photos has necessitated them being split over two photo gallery pages.

This month we have (on this page):-
1. Our class 121 Bubblecar is now back with us after repair.
2. Pacers and a class 60 loco at Leeming Bar.
3. The Bedale Station Cafe is doing good business once it was allowed to reopen for outside sitting.
