I noticed on the BBC recently that the Scottish Railway Preservation Society (SRPS) have opened the section of line from Birkill to Manuel to passenger transport. The line was previously only used for accessing the Network Rail lines. This means that the line is now 1.5 miles longer. There is no station yet at Manuel so passengers cannot embark or disembark.
Congratulations on the good work done and best wishes for the future. I look forwards to being able to visit and travel on the new line.
