Many regard January and February as quiet times of the year. But you just have to look below the surface to see this is not whooly true.
Yes the trains are not running public services so the number of visitors has gone down. But there is a lot going on behind the scenes with maintenance in various parts. Have a look at the work going on with the 73050 rebuild for example. That’s progressing well. Events for the coming year are being planned as well.
Just pop down to Wansford, you will perhaps not only be surprised, but perhaps see something you would like to get involved with.
Perhaps after all the railway is not as quiet as you think…
