Welcome to the FRT blog

Welcome to the part of the FRT website where you can keep bang up to date with the latest news and goings on! We hope you like it!

The aim is to report on the latest activities of our locomotives and rolling stock, and what our volunteers are getting up to. A lot of the activity is at our main base at the Ribble Steam Railway where we have completed a new shared workshop building, but we are also active wherever our engines and carriages are working!

Some of the items mentioned here will appear before we have had a chance to update the main website. For obvious reasons we will not post here any confidential discussions about hire agreements, planned steaming dates etc. until the hiring party has publicised those themselves, which is in line with our general policy. So please come back to this page regularly. Alternatively, you can keep up to date by following us on Twitter or Facebook.

You can see past postings in the archives listed on the right hand side of this page.  For older blogs (which were hosted directly within the FRT website rather than this WordPress blog) please see the 2016, 2015 and  2014 archives.
