Exciting times on heritage railways (2)

My first post on this subject was posted on 9th April 2012.

A few snippets:

North Yorkshire Moors Railway

Through services from Pickering to Whitby.  Network Rail track used from Goathland to Whitby.  New platform at Whitby for use by NYMR trains.

Swanage Railway

Now linked to Network Rail and through running possible.

Bluebell Railway

Has made it to East Grinstead and through running to Network Rail possible.

Rother Valley Railway

A great deal of development at Robertsbridge and rebuilding of bridges on the line striking out to Tenterden.  Short siding connection with Network Rail at Robertsbridge. However no link yet between the Rother Valley Railway and the Kent & East Sussex Railway.

Spa Valley Railway

Opened to Eridge.  No physical link to Network Rail

Great Central Railway

The two sections of the railway (Ruddington to Loughborough and Loughborough to Leicester) to be joined once the new bridge over the old Midland Railway at Loughborough is built.

Festiniog Railway and West Highland Railway

New platforms at Porthmadog to simplify through running.
