This event last Saturday ran to time with every train running to time and all connections being made.
The only problem was the weather which went from bad to worse from the early afternoon. However the Six who went on this outing enjoyed the travel and over 300 miles were covered
Two of the loading points were Eling Wharf, Totton, Southampton and Tiverton Junction, where roof tiles produced at Burlescombe were loaded.
Nice that this CRS site joins long lost relations.
