Just visited Kirkstall Abbey and had to check out the railway when I came back. Sorry to hear it's founder died last year; hope it starts up again soon.

Hi Clive, sorry you were not able to have a ride on the railway. I'll post on the website as soon as I hear anything about a re-opening.
Cheers, David.

Hello David
I
have a page dedicated to the Hemingbrough Brick and Tile Works at http://www.hemingbrough.net/brickworks.html

May I use a copy of 'Atlas' from your website and some details, please, which would be accompanied by the customary thanks and your website address?

My wife and I had an enjoyable day at the Abbey Museum last year and didn't know we were so close to some Hemingbrough history. We must come back in the spring.

The last driver of 'Druid' still lives in the village and I hope to get some recollections from him soon.

Sincerely

Hi all
Well I must admit, this is one railway that i had not heard of until today [sorry !]
We would have definetly visited you before.
The funds are not so great at the moment, and our only road transport is our 1960 Ford Popular 100E, which is not really suited to long [ish] trips up and down the motorways.
We do manage to get about a bit though, and tend to use A roads etc and have a very steady trip out[ max speed around 50mph]
Anyway, love the website and the look of the railway and cant wait to give you a visit sometime this year.
as it says in our profile, I am sure you will find lots to interest you on our website http://ngon30.weebly.com .
A link to yourselves is now already added , good luck with everything, hope to see you soon,
Roger & Andrew

tumbled in on this site - what an interesting little railway. Next time I travel up to see the mighty LUFC I shall have to find room for a visit to the ALR.
Cheers!

Hi,

I just want to enquire if you take volunteers to work on the restoration projects at all (or any other aspect of the railway for that matter!) ? I am working with a student here at Leeds City College who would be really interested in this. Thanks, Jane


Hi Jane,
New volunteers are always welcome. The only requirements are a safe and mature attitude to working on a railway and an enthusiasm for narrow gauge railways.
