Can You Remember ?

Post by Turnip Town » Wed Jun 21, 2017 7:06 pm

This is just a little fun item to jog peoples' memories about past happenings at the Yorkshire Wolds Railway. Yes, I know the images are black and white, that's deliberate just to give a bit of a yesteryear YWR feel!

Hopefully it will also provide a little background to members and volunteers who were not around when the railway got started.

Ed and Graham have a natter in the shade at the north end of the coach whilst I think Ian C rakes newly laid road planings flat.

In view of 5576 being due for some paintwork attention, weather permitting, here's a quick reminder of the first time round!
