TBT – Portbury takes on Foxfield Bank, 2008

At the Foxfield Railway’s 2008 gala, Portbury paid a visit and was given the chance to attack the famousĀ 1-in-19 to 1-in-26 Foxfield Bank, the climb away from Foxfield Colliery itself.

Youtube user ‘Pennysteam’ was there to capture the event (If you like railway videos, be sure to subscribe to pennysteam as their footage is spectacular)
