THE Avon Valley Railway ran an intensive Class 31 top-and-tail service on June 1-2, in conjunction with a beer festival at Bitton station.
The first day promised ‘90 miles of thrash’ on the line, which is a little over 2.3 miles in length.
There were 19 return trips between Oldland Common and Avonside, some passing through Bitton station non-stop.
Turn-around at each terminus was usually three minutes.
Only 14 trains were operated on the Saturday, these running around a driver experience course.
