Vale of Berkeley Railway

Anyone else want to come and join us working with our friends at the DFR?At the Parkend end of the line, it’s all going on too!
Day two of the loop extension works. Down line slewed, old track removed, new track panels built and rail moved up in preparation using the iron men. Much thanks to our friends at the Vale of Berkeley Railway who came en-mass and more than doubled our work force today.

Does anyone have a machine that can get these roots out of the weighbridge front wall without damaging the building any further? ... See MoreSee Less

Vale of Berkeley Railway

This concentrates the mind! (Thanks to Alan Price and Tony Goddard for doing this).

This is the key for trains using the single line section between the 2 stations. It is used to open and close the ground frame that controls the tracks, so that trains can go up to Berkeley. A train can only go up the line if it has this key so this means that no other train can be on the line at the same time, preventing collisions!!

How soon will it happen? Its up to YOU! How much do you want to see trains operating and how much can you help us get there? The race is on!!

Please consider becoming a member or volunteering some of your time now and again.
