Ludgershall Branch

I live close to the Ludgershall-Andover branch line.

At about 1pm, a yellow test train, topped and tailed by Class 73s, passed along the line and returned approximately 30 minutes later

Anybody aware of any plans to reactivate the line?

I would be very happy if they did.

Alan

A quick online search (I don't use G$$gle) reveals that there are indeed proposals to reopen the branch. There are numerous references to this; the most recent I could find (Nov 2017) was on Wiltshire local radio station SpireFM's website:

I shall try to find something more recent, and more definite.
