Work Progress: April 2017

In our November 2016 News Report we advised the delivery of four (4) platform seat benches to Chelfham procured from the West Somerset Railway. Two of the benches were for Snapper Halt, the other pair were to purchased for use at Chelfham. We can now report that three (3) of these benches have now been restored to their former glory of SR green, and on Saturday last week two (2) benches were collected from Chelfham and transported to Snapper Halt.
