Another rare opportunity for an open top ride in Plymouth this weekend:
event Easter Sunday Sunday 24th April 2011
Adults £2.50, Children £1.00
Free Easter Egg for all fare paying children, whilst stocks last.
Trains will depart from 1300 until 1600 for the return train ride from Marsh Mills Station to Lee Moor Crossing,a trip of nearly a mile and a half.
The Railway Centre, Station Buffet and Shop will also be open from 1100. (Amenities and Trains subject to availability)
458 has had a bit of a makeover this past week and it is hoped that it will have its name reapplied in time for Sunday. A full repaint into yellow will be taking place over the winter months.
Sorry for the lack of posting over the last week. Family commitments and a bit of admin to catch up on took all my time!
