‘Portbury’ Returns!

‘Evening all.

 

A few pics of what’s been going on…

 

Demolition of the former coal yard/car park is proceeding rapidly. The half of the car park that is left will keep functioning for 18 months, then the bulldozers will move in

‘Portbury has returned from Buckfastleigh workshops on the South Devon Railway after her overhaul, and is being reassembled. It is hoped she will be back in traffic for the Harbour Festival later this summer

There are more updates and track modifications up the line toward the SS Great Britain which I hope to report on later in the week.

 

That’s it for now!
