Network Rail Completes Key Step To Reopen Northumberland Line

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Technology Magazine.

It may only be the renewal of 600 yards and competry at Newsham, but it least it gets the project on the rails.

I find it heartening, that this project and the similar Beeching Reversal one at Okehampton seemed to have made quick starts.

  1. I too am heartened by the progress on these two schemes.
    Nevertheless I remain concerned regarding the actions of Highways England scuppering other projects on the Beeching Reversal list.

    • Perhaps the civil servants are the sons of those, who closed several lines that Beeching said should be kept open?
