The Branch Line Society in conjunction with CHiltern Railways are running a rail trip this Saturday from Birmingham Moor Street. The trip in a 168 will be covering numerous loops and sidings between Aynho Junction and Stourbridge including many around Banbury Station that are due to be removed with the soon to be started resignalling scheme there.
For particular interest to SMJ fans will be the two loops at Fenny Compton and a trip up the SMJ as far as Network Rail Boundary with the MOD network, unfortunately the train cannot enter the depot itself.
If anybody is interested have a look at http://www.branchline.org.uk/events.php to get full details, the exact route is shown on the booking form which you can download by clicking on the icon.
If any is interested please email Kev Adlam, BLS Secretary urgently, not the contact shown on the website. His email is:- Kevin.Adlam@merchantrentals.co.u
I shall be on the trip. I will be leaving on the 07.53 from Leamington Spa to get to Moor Street
Hope to see some of you this trip which is a non-profit making charity event for the Railway Children Charity.
