Rudyard Lake Steam Railway

A Staffordshire Moorlands tourist attraction has reopened under new ownership.

The Post & Times reported last month that Rudyard Lake Steam Railway had been sold to Simon Clarke, who has taken on the lake side attraction under the newly formed company of Leek and Rudyard Railway Limited.

Mr Clarke, who lives in Rudyard, has plans to bring extra lines and equipment from a railway which he had previously purchased from Scotland.

He added: “We are now closed until February half-term during which time there will be some building ground works carried out at the railway ahead if some of improvements planned for this year.

“For the remainder of the year we have several special events including a Diesel Gala in April and a Steam Gala in September, both of which will have guest engines at the railway for the whole weekend.

“Our other major change for 2016 is that Platform 2 Cafe is open whenever the railway is running. We hope this enhances everyone’s visit to the railway.”

Very best wishes to Mr. Clarke and the Leek & Rudyard Railway Ltd.
