The opening date for the halt will be Monday June 5th. The exact arrangements for the day are still in the course of preparation, so keep your eyes peeled for any press releases.
What we do know is that one of our little pet dreams will come true. We will be able to replicate the famous photograph of the 14xx slowing to a stop at the halt, with water coming out of the tank. The engine in the picture, GWR 1424, was cut up in 1964, but we have been able to find a worthy replacement in GWR 1450, the owners of which were kind enough to agree to help us out. The auto coach paired with it will be W238W, which, if we are not mistaken, is the same one as in the picture.
As a taster, here is a picture taken today of Foremarke Hall passing the halt with a regular service train.
