LATE RUNNING EVENINGS GET OFF TO A GOOD START

Categories:Special events

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.
