Background

An imminent reworking of a part of the Wansford site has seen 101 take pride of place as the 'Gate Guardian', replacing the old 'Kriegslok' which left for Belgium recently . It is now the first thing visitors see when they come to the railway. As such our intention is to keep the cosmetic restoration going as an ongoing project and very much at the forefront of future plans without diverting resources away from other tasks already in hand.
