Wensleydale Railway Supports The Leyburn 1940’s Weekend
Wensleydale Railway will be strongly supporting the 1940’s weekend. There will be extensive advertising and a special fares offer to encourage as many people as possible to travel to Leyburn by train, rather than bring their cars and the trains will run at convenient times to get to Leyburn to join in the festivities.
Plans are already in place to create a 1940’s atmosphere on the trains and at our stations. There will be a ukulele band on Saturday, playing at both Leeming Bar and Leyburn stations and a jazz band on Sunday. Singers with suitable wartime songs will be performing on the trains. Also, there will be a range of children’s activities on the trains to help to pass the journey time and to get everyone in the mood!
