Saturday 22nd January sees a steam service with all being well 92 Squadron running. Three services leaving Wansford at 10.00 12.00 and 14.00. With no services to Yarwell.
Steam services are always popular so a good day expected.
Tickets will be available to pre-book or on the day.
So nice to see the first steam service of the new year.
Tomorrow (Saturday) sees a repeat of last Saturday with a railcar service using the Swedish Railcar.
This time of year is very quiet on the railway as it is with other heritage lines and the Railcar is an excellent choice to run. It gives visitors an excellent view of the scenery as it runs between Wansford & Peterborough.
There are four services and the first will leave Wansford at 1030.
So if you fancy a breath of fresh air and the chance to get out then perhaps a visit to the railway could be just what you are looking for.

Here we are at the end of another year. Today saw the last of the 2021 Santa trains run, and as always they were full and busy.
Now we have a short rest before we begin 2022 services on the 8th January with the Swedish Railcar.
It’s been a funny couple of years with great challenges and unexpected hurdles at every turn. But the railway is still running.
So if you have visited and spent money with us, thanks for your support, it is appreciated.
We look forward to seeing you in 2022, hopefully with more events and visiting locomotives.
So on behalf of the members & staff I would like to wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and we look forward to seeing you again in the coming year.
Thomas in the Christmas Spirit.

Back in the dim distant past before the age of digital cameras and smartphones people still took pictures.
Here are some from the days of film. They have been sent to me by Christopher Walker and were taken by his father, dates are unknown.

I always like the look of photographs taken the traditional way, I always feel they have character and depth.
After I posted some of Christopher Walker pictures he has sent me two more of the Santa locomotives yesterday.
