Making tracks to see train service recreated
A much-loved train service is to be remembered – five decades after it came to an end.
The last Pines Express passenger train passed through the west on September 8, 1962. Among the locations served by The Pines Express between Bournemouth and Manchester was Bitton.
And on Saturday, September 8, the Avon Valley Railway will be amending its timetable to match as closely as possible the Pines Express workings through the village where it is now based.
Both the up and down trains will be recreated, with express, non-stop, steam-hauled passenger trains between its Avon Riverside station and Oldland Common and vice versa. Its heritage diesel railcar will also be operating, and limited edition souvenir tickets, just like those issued in 1962, will be available.
