BTWT is at its best when reporting stories and some of our best stories are suggested by our readers. If we have managed to make the blog more interesting in recent months it is because a small band of readers regularly send in ideas for stories. Please keep up the good work!

And the story of the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad is no less amazing! Follow the links below to learn more.

    Lovely! Beautifully made – Vimeo has the edge over YouTube when it comes to quality and professionalism.

    And long may No. 40 grace the tracks of the USA!
