Our level of chuffidness (a new word we are getting to love) has reached new heights with the winning of another award for our new station at Truthall Halt. So to add to our National Railway Heritage Award commendation and the Heritage Railway Association Annual Award for Small Groups we have now another one to celebrate. This time it has been awarded by the Cornish Buildings Group and we have won their annual award. This is a very precious award for us as it is not an industry award, but celebrates new buildings and restorations in Cornwall that have accomplished something really special. And we came first this year. The judges said we had accomplished something really magical. So thanks to all of you who helped raise funds to build it and support us, to those who spent many hours working on it, and to our visitors whose income helps us with the upkeep. And finally to the judges and the CBG for considering us worthy of this accolade. We are immensely grateful!
James and Geoff with our new award at yesterday’s ceremony.
