Bleadon and Uphill
Two large exhibits still remaining on site were the former Kitson built Cardiff Railway No. 5, later GWR 1338, and AC Cars Railbus 79976.
Quite why I didn’t take a general shot of the site remains one of the World’s great mysteries.....
The Railbus has had rather a charmed life. It was donated by owner Mr Brian Kinsey after closure of the Yieldingtree to the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, where it was used as a static buffet.
It finally finished up at the Great Central Railway where it was stored outside the loco shed at Loughborough for a number of years.
After a successful crowd funding appeal, it was moved during the summer of 2018 to Burton, where it is intended to restore the unit.
Best regards, Ron. Many thanks indeed Ron
