Special Visitors for the Yorkshire Wolds Railway

Over the weekend of the 4 and 5 of September, the Yorkshire Wolds Railway are proud to be hosting members of the Hull and Barnsley Railway Stock Fund at the Fimber Halt site.

 

The Hull and Barnsley Railway Stock Fund was formed in 1968 with the aim of saving as much rolling stock and artefacts from the line as possible. Based at Goathland, the H&BRSF are now completing their most ambitious restoration project yet with the repair of coach No.1 at Hull College.

Operations director Martyn Jones explained, “We are really excited to be welcoming members of H&BRSF to the YWR when they will be bringing name boards, tickets and many pictures of the Hull and Barnsley Railway around Hull and the Wolds. The Yorkshire Wolds Railway have not done an event like this before, and we are really excited to be working with the team from Hull to offer something a little different in a unique space here at the YWR”.

In another first for the team at Fimber, and to give as many people as possible the chance to see the items on display, the YWR will be open on both Saturday and Sunday from 11-5 giving cab rides along the recently extended 1000ft railway line. Matthew Brown, media director said “we appreciate that not everyone is available to visit on a Sunday, and as our friends at the H&BRSF are visiting we thought it was an excellent opportunity to trial a Saturday opening and we look forward to welcoming visitors to site to let them see what we have achieved.

The YWR is always keen to involve new people, and anyone interested in becoming a member or volunteering, making a donation or just finding out more can visit www.yorkshirewoldsrailway.org.uk or call 01377 338053 for more information.
