Having had its application to develop a heritage centre and restored stretch of the Southwold Railway rejected last October by the planning authorities, the Southwold Railway Trust has taken on board the views of planners and of residents in the village of Wenhaston. Revised and simplified proposals are being considered by the Southwold Railway Trust with a view to making a fresh planning application during 2013. Meanwhile work continues on the construction of replica Sharp Stewart 2-4-0 Blyth, with latest components incluiding the chimney and smokebox door. Design work is currently focussed on the boiler. Donations for the new loco can be made via the Southwold Rauilway Trust website, where the details of our 2-4-0 club are explained.
