150 Years of the Bristol Harbour Railway

At 11:15 today the railway marked 150 years of operation. Portbury was out with the Lord Mayor and a brass band in attendance at the same spot as 11th March 1872.
Here’s to the next 150 years!
On the M Shed website you can read an excellent article about the birth of the BHR.
Bob Edwardes was there to capture the photo of the 2022 ceremony in the same spot as the 1872 engraving – apparently it rained that day too!
