Peggy & Bridget came home after over 50 years

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

Yes, it did happen!  Peggy and Bridget did meet up at the society’s AGM.  The nameplates from these two Baldwin locos did return to Ashover, and were unexpectedly joined by a Joan nameplate as well.

In fact Peggy’s whistle also put in an appearance, as well as many other artefacts from the old ALR.  Considering the fact that it will soon be 60 years since the closure of the railway it is surprising the amount of material that is still available.  Newly discovered items are still turning up.
