Arbroath miniature railway’s fate to be decided [Dundee Evening Telegraph]





Date: 15/02/2014

After a series of planning and safety rows, a generations-old family attraction in Arbroath is finally ready to expand. Angus Council’s development standards committee will convene on Tuesday to decide the fate of Kerr’s Miniature Railway, in Arbroath’s West Links, which has been waiting a decision on its vital expansion for over eight months. John Kerr, the local attraction’s 18-year-old owner and grandson of the railway’s founder, applied to the council last year for permission to add nearly 250m of train track, two platforms and a new ticket booth, and says the 79-year-old family favourite may sink or swim based upon the council’s decision.
