Community Rail Week 2007
Community Rail Week took place from 19th May - 26th May 2007, at various locations throughout the country. Organised by ACoRP, the Rail Operating Companies and Community Rail Partnerships. The aim is to show that rail is an environmental friendly way to travel.
The Gala at Bridlington Station along with other events along the Yorkshire Coast Line (Scarborough - Hull) was with the support of Northern Rail, The Yorkshire Coast Community Rail Partnership, Bridlington Station Buffet, Bridlington Model Railway Society and MIND.
Without doubt the 'Star' of the Gala was the Ned Rail Roaring Rail Orchestra, who travelled overnight from the Netherland's just to play at Bridlington, then returned overnight back to the Netherlands. Well done, they added atmosphere and everyone thought they were brilliant, please come and visit again.
