Remember, Remember the 5th November!
Ironically our 20T Brake Van No.DB952045 suffered an arson attack and was completely gutted. Now after 8 months, it is now well on the way to being completed, following an extensive rebuild by the hardworking volunteers of the engineering workshop.
It should return to service early Autumn, and 'sister' brake van B955166 will take its place in the workshop for some minor repairs and repainting.
The fire was fully investigated by the D&C Police, but no arrests were made.
This shows that even major damage cannot spoil the spirit of the volunteers who work on the Bodmin & Wenford Railway. If you would like to join our team and help with the running of and the repairs to keep the railway in tip top condition, then please call 01208 73555 for more information.
