The Vale of Berkeley Heritage Railway was established in 2015; restored it will run from Sharpness Docks on the River Severn to Berkeley Road on the main Birmingham/Bristol line.  The fully equipped engineering facility will restore locos, rolling stock; track, signalling and infrastructure rebuilt to LMS detail by volunteers. The talk by Ian Raven from the VofBR covers the lines birth in the early 19th century, its demise in 1964, the challenges faced in restoration, the VoBR loco pool and how it will become a cornerstone of tourism in the Severn Vale.
