May 2014 AGM


The 2014 AGM was a momentous event in that it set out the proposed plans for moving to Peak Rail’s Rowsley site. The wording on the powerpoint page being read out by Chairman Richard is ;

An Alternative (treasonable !) thought

The Rainbow Railway
Develop a clear understanding now with DDNGR and Peak Rail that we join forces.
Get the workshop established to implement stages 1-4.
Work with Henry to extend his line to create a loop and triangle.
Continue with locomotive and truck restoration and aim to build a Gloucester and Wembey coach.
Seek Heritage Lottery Funding to restore the Baldwin, and to rebuild the Café on the picnic area.
Plan for the Café to become a restaurant and a narrow gauge railway museum.
Work to develop enthusiast and children’s events to make the railway capable of a positive financial return.
