Tonight we are to hear about the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway from Stephen Walker, Business Manager of the voluntary organisation.
Please see the separate posting regarding Vehicular Access to the Venue for this evening’s lecture……
This heritage railway is part of the former Skipton to Ilkley line which was closed in 1965. From it’s early days based at Embsay station the railway has been extended to Bolton Abbey with Skipton being the next target for extension.
Railway related topics are always of interest to engineers so come along and listen to Stephen this evening and share his passion for bygone times on the rails. He will tell you about the history and development of the organisation and a little about our local railways.
