About Weekend Rails
Weekend Rails is a blog site I created to post updates and information about my son's private collection of 19 standard gauge diesel locomotives and other preserved railway vehicles. I manage the blog and my son's own website in my spare time, when not working at my own business, Pete Briddon Industrial Railway Specialist.
My son's collection - Andrew Briddon Locos - is spread across a number of preserved railways and details of the locos & other vehicles can be found on Andrew's web site - HERE.
Weekend Rails will frequently reflect on the work Andrew, (my wife) Steph, Andrew's friend Terry and I do on the locos and other vehicles in the collection and the trials and tribulations involved in getting that work done.
