The Years End, But We’re Back Sooner Than You Might Think!

…And so the last Santa trains have been run. We would like to thank each and every one of our visitors this year for helping make this a very successful year overall. We have made some great gains this year, not least with the Exhibition Centre well on its way, and the Sundew project continuing quietly in the background. We have met some wonderful new members, welcomed new volunteers, had some fantastic press coverage locally and in the railway glossies. We have new track down in the quarry section, and plans afoot for the next stage of the development plan. We stop for a short pause over Christmas, and wish all our followers a hearty HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR!

If you find yoursel full of turkey and fed up of TV repeats, you can always browse issue 3 of IRONSTONE from this link, or view a Youtube photographic montage of Rocks in 2014.

We are back in action on New Years Day, so if you’re feeling jaded and need to blow the cobwebs away, or you just feel like a day of industrial heritage, come and join us – no need to book as the Christmas Trains leaflet stated, we have enough capacity, so just come as you are. New Years Day will be the only running day in January as we need to allow time for remedial track work in the area of P1, the points that lead in to the platform. Other work over this period will see a big push on the Sundew Cafe revamp.

Our 2015 Visitor Guide is now available here, and we hope you agree that it looks like another good year. We very much hope to see you.
