Volunteer day at Apedale Railway 5&6th March 2022
« on: January 20, 2022, 05:10:00 pm »
Leafers volunteers/working party to re-lay tracks at Apedale light railway (the LATP location) on weekend 5th and 6th March.

Right ho folks, our hosts for Leafers Apedale light railway, have run volunteer days from companies like NetworkRail, over the years.
So I thought the good people of Leafers could do our own day(s), as the railway is run by volunteers only by them selfs, days like theses really help them out.
I myself is a member of the railway, so I asked them if we could run a day and Sat 5th & Sun 6th March is a free weekend for them.
We need about 10 to 20 (20 max number) on site, Any more and its hard to organise. We have a nice big job, to relay some track in the field railway, the one that runs around the show field you saw in Leafers.
Its a lot of hard work lifting and packing track, only skill you need is to be able to hold a shovel.
Camping on site is available for those wanting/ able to do both days.

See couple of pics of last time we need this.

If people are interested can you let me know to see if have the numbers to go  ahead with this.

Cheers Vinny.
