Mid-Suffolk Light Railway snaps up a sign of the times




The Mid-Suffolk Light Railway has acquired a piece of its own history after a Kenton Station board became a permanent part of its collection.

After the closure of the line in 1952, the board was taken to the Museum of British Transport, in Clapham, and then to York’s National Railway Museum.

The board was loaned back to the Wetheringsett site in 2012 and now, after nearly 30 years of negotiations, it has been purchased by the charity.

Kenton was the only station on the 'Middy' to have two running-in boards.

Though the popular attraction announced last week it was not closing for the 2020 season, many projects are under way for its return in 2021.
