Vale of Berkeley Railway Stand with 1967 built Vanguard, Gypsum No 2.

The Vale of Berkeley Railway and 44901 Kingmoor Black 5 had a very successful weekend at the excellent Gloucestershire Steam & Vintage Extravaganza show in South Cerney. The Stroud Vintage Transport & Engine Club (SVTEC) certainly know how to put on a good show.

44901 Kingmoor Black 5 Stand

We had an excellent location, near to the centre of activities and our newly restored 1967 Vanguard diesel shunter, kindly brought to the show by Moveright Int. drew lots of people in. We understand this was probably the first time a locomotive has ever attended this event.

 

 

 

 

It was great to talk to lots of people and make them aware of our plans for a new heritage railway at Sharpness. We received lots of support, took 7 new memberships, sold a good number of raffle tickets and raised extra money for both these projects.

Many thanks to all those that helped setup this show and man the stands.
