Added on Friday 22nd May...

Today we have taken the first very careful steps towards our eventual return. Although the railway remains closed to the public for now, and majority of departments remain closed to all for the time being, a very small number of the team have returned to work in a carefully-controlled way as we begin to restart our operations.

With precautions in place, including Driver and Fireman wearing face coverings, and Guard alone in the coaches, BR Standard Class 2 78018 completed some important test runs along the line today to confirm the success of repair works."

Good news and hopefully other lines will be starting the slow process of return to operations.

That is good to hear, the above photo is good too. Good Luck everyone.

Excellent news. It will be small steps on a long road to a new sort of normal, but I for one look forward to getting back down to the GCR!
