Retford Charter Day

A busy day on platform 1brs513The rooms were open from 10.00am to 4.00pm and entrance was FREE! There were be displays of working model railways, refreshments and archive photographs of the railway station over previous years. These events are the only times these once busy premises are open to the general public.

Despite their years of disuse, many of the original interior fittings have survived and the rooms offer a glimpse back to the days when the railways were the only way to travel. SocietyMembers will be on hand to discuss local railway history, and also the Railway Society, it’s interests and aspects of model railways.
