Early WRA Volunteering Photos

Castle Bolton - 1996/7

In 1996 the Wensleydale Railway Association (WRA) got control of part of the old trackbed near Castle Bolton and started to make preparations for track laying, the intention was to lay track to run trains between Redmire and Aysgarth. At this time it was not anticipated that we would be able to run trains on the still used Northallerton to Redmire section of the line in the foreseeable future.

Thanks go to Michael Metcalfe who has provided these photographs. He has been a volunteer right from the very first WRA working party and is still an active volunteer on the railway.

The names of the people named in the photo captions are thought to be all correct, however if there are any errors or omissions please let me know.
