Who could resisit a trip on the Swanage railway? Nice report.
I suspect Ilfracombe would not be quite as much of an economic neglected area had the railway line to there been handed over to some preservationists – even if the local council had stepped in to buy it from BR and handed it over it would have paid hansomly in terms of economic development ‘return on investment’….
