FI­NALLY! COR­RIS SE­CURES OLD STA­TION SITE

Steam Railway (UK) - - Narrow Gauce -

The Cor­ris Rail­way has bought the area of an old sta­tion site that was used for many years as a med­i­cal cen­tre. The por­ta­ble build­ing at Cor­ris, which was an ob­sta­cle to the rail­way’s am­bi­tions to pro­vide com­plete sta­tion fa­cil­i­ties, closed in Jan­uary 2015. The CR has cleared and fenced the site and ex­tended the track by 1½ rail lengths in time for the May Bank Hol­i­day weekend. When a car­riage has been adapted to pro­vide a brake com­part­ment at the down­hill end, trains can start run­ning with the en­gine lead­ing up­hill. Long-term plans in­clude the build­ing of a run-round loop.
