Shillingstone Station at The Great Dorset Steam Fair 2018 - 50th Anniversary

DATE POSTED: 31 Aug 2018



North Dorset Railway Trust - Shillingstone station volunteers run rides for a rare loco

at this year's Steam Fair !

A great attraction at this years 50th of the Dorset Steam  Fair, was the Blue Circle, original built by Aveling & Porter,

back in 1926. But owned today by Mick Smith and used on the Rusden, Higham & Wellington railway.

This was arranged by the GDSF and the Shillingstone Station Volunteers gave up their free time to arrange special rides

on this beautiful loco collecting for their charity to bring back steam to north Dorset.

Almost 3,000 people took the ride taking 1000’s more photographs.

Its hoping this will be with a longer track next year and Shillingstone have agreed to help again.

Well done volunteers at Shillingstone Station!
