On Bank Holiday Monday, 25th August 2014, the East Lancs Railway held its annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic, where lots of young children enjoyed taking their own teddy bears for a ride on the trains throughout the day. On their return to the station in Bury they were able to visit the Transport Museum across the road where author, D M Rivers, was signing his Sleepy, the Magical Bear books, and where Val Chapman of the Touchstones Creative Writing Group was reading chapters of Book One to the children, still tightly clutching their teddy bears.
