Knotty Heritage Train Runs for First Time in 2016!!!


The Knotty Heritage Train ran for the first time this year on 24 April.   Despite the weather being far from ideal everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.   

Ms Elise Turner (Heritage Lottery Fund Development Officer) took a turn on the footplate.   

Thanks to Chris Knight for his fine display of NSR memorabilia.   Thanks to all the trustees who put in so much preparatory work.   Thanks also to Birgitta Hoffmann, Amy, Ann & Richard Millward & Ray & Ann Withington.   Thanks to Glen Verrent for the excellent buffet for our HLF & VCT guests.


This photo really shows something very special and will bring a lump to the throat of all "Knotty" enthusiasts.   It shows the only remaining Knotty steam loco (new L class no 2) at the head of the only two restored Knotty carriages (no's 61 & 127) at Foxfield on 24 April 2016.   The first time a Knotty loco has been seen at the head of Knotty coaches for something like 80 years.   And in Knotty territory too!

Such Stuff as Dreams are Made Of.....
