We had a great evening at the Heritage Railway Association Awards on Saturday 9 February.
Although we didn't win our category with the restoration of Coach 4, it was good to meet so many other groups with similar interests.
Along with Ian Young, S&DRT Chairman, several members of the restoration team past and present attended the event; Neil Pankhurst's involvement with the Trust goes back several decades.
Our friends at the Helston Railway were there and deservedly won a category with the re-creation of Truthall Halt… Kilmersdon should be steaming down to Truthall again from 28 March, and with a record 10,000+ visitors in 2018, the Helston is looking forward to another year of solid progress.
