Wings and Wheels Society.

The Aln Valley Railway Classic Vintage Vehicle Show Saturday 18-6-22.

One of our original Wings & Wheels Society founder member 'Rik T' now lives North of Newcastle, and guess what? He still enjoys a good Classic car rally, recently purchasing an MG Midget to tinker with. Near to his new home, just down the road, is the Aln Valley Railway at Lionheart Station, Alnwick, Northumberland, that holds an annual Classic and Vintage Vehicle Show. So we got our Northern correspondent to cover this prestigious event, showcasing modern and old classics, sports cars, Agricultural vehicles, and stationary engines. Steam and diesel hauled train rides were also available on the day, and what day it was as you can see, with cracking sunny weather as well. The Aln Valley Railway is a relative junior in the heritage railway movement, having only opened in 2012. Constructed and run by volunteers, it aims to recreate the rail link between Alnwick and the East Coast mainline at Alnmouth. Rik notes that he would like to thank the Aln Valley Railway Staff and Organisers for their hard work to make this event possible, Enjoy the pictures. >
