« BIG SPRING CLEAN-UP LAUNCHES THIS SUNDAY | Main | Balerno Branch Railway Weekend 21st - 22nd March »

Balerno Branch Railway Weekend was a huge hit with visitors

We have had the most amazing weekend as many hundreds of people came to the Visitor Centre to see the working model of the Branch line at Colinton created by enthusiast Alistair Dickson, the brilliant displays created by the Colinton History Society and experience talks and a guided walk along the route. We raised over £500 in donations from the visitors and had a bumper day in the cafe. A HUGE thankyou to all who made this weekend possible especially Alistair Dickson, Anne King and Bill Shannon who made masterminded the event and the dozens of volunteers who helped over the weekend. Check out the photos below taken by Bryce Morrison.
