Snapper Halt working day, April 1st 2019

It has been asked over the last half dozen or so EA meetings if it would be possible to lay a cosmetic length of track at Snapper Halt, with a specific donation pot having been set up for this project enough funds have been raised to enable us to start the work. Mike Selby has most kindly donated the lengths of rail required and all that is needed now are donations to purchase the sleepers to complete the project and of course, if anyone has a couple of 2ft gauge wagons they don’t need…

  1. Looking fantastic!!
    How about another short section of track under another prominent place, say at Collard Bridge. That really would make EA more noticed!!

  2. Thank you for your comment Alex. EA is not really about reconstructing the railway, but if shareholders, Trust members and friends of the railway really wanted to see track down at Collard Bridge and were willing to fund it, I am sure a way could be found.
