A VOLUNTEER-run heritage railway line in Wallingford has restarted its journeys after closing for the winter months.

The Cholsey and Wallingford Heritage Railway, known as The Bunk Line, is located in St John’s Road and has been running since 1866.

It is run by volunteers from the Cholsey Wallingford Railway Preservation Society who aim to “enhance the facilities that the railway offers”.

It was closed during winter for the volunteers to restore some vehicles such as the TSO W3736, which should be back in action by the end of the year.

The station has now released its running days for the year including the return of The Polar Express for the first time in two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.
