1800 Oldland Common 29 March 1991

Manning Wardle 0-6-0ST 1800 Littleton No.5 approaches Oldland Common on 29 March 1991 with the first public train over the newly opened line from Bitton. This was after the Avon Valley Railway had won a costly legal battle to reopen the reinstated line. The rusty track clearly demonstrates that this is the first train!
