Thanks to Network Rail who have worked hard getting the Cwmgwrach branch back into action ready for Saturday’s tour. No trains had run for a year or more and NR has cleared away a mountain of vegetation. All credit to DB Cargo too; yesterday they took 66152 out for a proving run along the line – complete with ‘Margam Sheep’ headboard!

All went without a hitch, save for the small matter of a tree which had fallen since the vegetation was cleared away and was cut up by the Permanent Way team. Thanks to DB driver Chris Walters for letting us use his photo.

And look – NO SNOW!
