Issue 71 of Swanning Around - with re-opening now on the horizon

With the Government announcement of the roadmap out of Covid restrictions, the railway is now looking to start services on April 12th. But - before we start there remains a lot to do. The Pway team have been carrying out serious repair works to New Barn Bridge and the Locomotive team have lifted the boiler our of 31806 and replaced it with the refurbished boiler from 31874. With other works underway the railway is feeling that our 2021 season is just around the corner!
