Helston Railway returns, and Christmas is around the corner…

It’s the first day of the Xmas Steam Up weekends tomorrow, so Portbury and the Fairbairn Steam Crane should be in action on the dockside.

This week, the lovely people from the Helston Railway in Cornwall have been back for more rail and sleepers. Here they are loading up (Photo from the Helston Railway Facebook page, click the link for more).

Helston Railway Collects Rail

Some of the surplus track lifted during the remodelling of both ends of the line was collected by the volunteers at the Helston Railway in Cornwall.

This line is based at Trevarno, and they operate two Ruston diesel shunters very similar to the one based on the BHR.
