The Volk’s Electric Railway Association
Hon. Vice President: Mr. Bernard Volk
The Volk’s Electric Railway Association – or VERA as it has become known – was launched upon an unsuspecting public on September 16th 1995. Since then it has become an active participant in the restoration, promotion and operation of the line. Pictured right, the Association’s first Chairman, Tim Steven (left), holds the inaugural day headboard with current Volk’s Manager Stuart Strong.
“The fantastic condition of this narrow gauge railway is testament not just
to engineering know-how of its inventor Magnus Volk, but to the dedicated
work of volunteers who help maintain the railway today.” John Wood
