We are pleased to announce that the ever popular “Tracks to the Trenches” Driver experience course dates for 2016 have been released.
This unique “day in the life” (of a WW1 light railway driver) course is a perfect present for special occasions. Delivered in a special presentation gift box, the voucher has a validity of 18 months, with the actual course date to be selected and booked directly by the recipient. With Christmas just around the corner, is this a perfect present for those difficult people who already have everything!?
Please see http://www.ww1-event.org/driver-experience-course for more details – which includes a rather convenient on-line purchase facility!

After weeks of our skilled technicians working around the clock, we are pleased to announce that the Tracks to the Trenches event now has its own public forum where you can follow venue development ideas and visitors, exhibitors & interested other parties can exchange ideas with each other and the event organisers.
We are keen to be as interactive as possible with our visitors & in this way we are offering you the chance to be part of the event organisation! Please use the “Public Forum” button on the menu at the top of the page to join in the discussions.
As ever – we are still keen to make contact with current army regiments who may be interested in assisting us in some form and we are equally keen to be given ideas on funding some of the more exotic attractions! Please contact us via the comments or by the contact box on the right of the main index page.
This is the new website to provide a focus and build-up towards the major WW1 commemoration event held over 13/14th September 2014 weekend at the Apedale Valley Light Railway’s site near Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England.
There is a high likliehood that the event may actually span 3-4 days – with School visits, Photographic charters & coach parties being strongly encouraged. Please contact us if this is of interest.
There are lots of other items and opportunities that will start to present themselves too. We are also keen to have discussions with Television/Film production companies who may be interested in working with us during this construction & gala creation.
We are also keen to make contact with any current Army units that might be able to assist us too please!
Please bookmark this site & watch for the regular updates as the developments progress.
