LATE RUNNING EVENINGS GET OFF TO A GOOD START
Sunday 24th April saw the first of the 2016 season ‘late running’ evenings when VERA takes over the operation of the railway outside of normal service hours. The weather was bright and rather cold but a steady flow of passengers enjoyed the experience of riding on the railway up to 7.00pm. The picture, taken by Les Kenward, shows Car 9 leaving the Aquarium Station with driver David Cowstick at the controls.
There will again be six late running days, all of them Sundays:
24th April, 5.00pm – 7.00pm (completed as above)
29th May, 5.00pm – 7.30pm (Bank Holiday Sunday)
26th June, 5.00pm – 8.00pm
24th July, 5.00pm -8.00pm
14th August, 5.00pm – 7.30pm
28th August, 5.00pm -7.30pm (Bank Holiday Sunday)
The railway will be closing on 4th September this year, to allow work to start on the exciting Heritage Lottery-funded refurbishment.
