26th July 1980

Branch Line Society
(Alderney Railtour)

Traction Used 3x Wickham railcars

Route :

Traction Route
as listed Braye Road - Inner Harbour
as listed Inner Harbour - Mannez Quarry
as listed Mannez Quarry - Braye Road

Notes :
(1) Chris Totty comments: Braye Road to Inner Harbour was not normally part of the Alderney passenger line
. He also lists another Braye Road to Mannez Quarry round trip but cannot confirm if this was part of the railtour or a public service. The train left after the arrival of the morning flight from Southampton and the participants walked from the airport to the station, which in Alderney is not far! My claim to fame is that I drove the special as a member of the Alderney Railway Society!
