Railways on the Air 2017

Riviera ARC will be participating in Railways on the Air by activating Babbacombe Cliff Railway.
We will be using GB4BCR as we have in past years and the event will be run on Saturday 23rd September.

This is a funicular railway taking holidaymakers down the steep Oddicombe Cliffs to the beach below and has been running for 90 years now.

The railway is owned and run by a community interest company set up by the Friends of Babbacombe Cliff Railway. For more info visit

Rick was having problems arranging a Foundation licence exam in Dorset so Riviera ARC rallied around to sort the problem out for him.

Congratulations Rick !
