50th Anniversary of Steamport Southport Event

We have recently been asked by a new member as to whether there’s any documents relating to the development of Ribble Steam Railway, and the answer is that of course there are many!
I put together a new page on this site to give a brief history of the establishment of the railway – and in doing so, found reference to the fact that the founding organisation – Steamport Southport opened it’s doors on Spring Bank Holiday in 1974 -so as we approach that 50th anniversary, we thought we should mark this occasion.
