Preparing for Railfest

This is one of a series of blog posts we’ll be bringing you in the run-up to our huge 9-day Railfest 2012 festival in June 2012. More blog posts about Railfest 2012

The sun is shining and a whole team of people are hard at work preparing for Railfest as 2 June gets closer.

Here is the team working on laying a 15” gauge track ready for Hawk and Synolda, under the watchful eye of a member of the Kirklees Light Railway.

Meanwhile West Coast Railways are busy helping with the shunting required to get everything in place.

Whilst an Edwardian velocipede gets an airing alongside Deltic Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry.

There is of course still much to do before Britain’s biggest rail show opens its doors: watch this space for more updates.
