Belah and Stainmore Trip

If you have looked on the '150' web site in the last couple of days you will see that I have added a page on the trip that will be available to visit Stainmore and Belah. You will find it here.

On Saturday 27th August - (the 'Grand Re-Opening Day' when we will reintroduce passenger train services at Kirkby Stephen East) - Mark Keefe has organised two coaches to take visitors to the unveiling of the new 'Stainmore Summit' sign (assuming that we have raised the cash!) by Steve Davies MBE. The coaches will also to visit the old signal box at the south end of Belah Viaduct. There is no charge for these coach places.

But part of this trip crosses private property and we have to limit capacity to just the two official coaches. So it is likely that there will be more demand for the available places than we can satisfy.

The organisers feel that the only fair way to deal with his is to hold a lottery for the available places. To enter this all you need to do is to follow the link to the new web page and log your name and contact details on the form available there. If you are lucky when we draw the numbers you will be allocated a place but we will be asking for a deposit from winners to hold the place open. This is refundable before you board the coach on the 27th August.

The important thing is that if you want to make this trip we must have a form back from you by Sunday 10th July. So if you want to attend please don't delay - why not fill it in now? Here it is.
