Chairman Neil Bentley said, "It is great to be supporting the Micro-Breweries of Huddersfield as well as creating a variety of different beers that promotes the Penistone Line and the Partnerships activities.
The PLP are teaming up with The Summer Wine Micro-Brewery from Honley to produce a Special Beer named after the Penistone Line - Chairman Neil Bentley will be assisting making the new beer in April ready for a launch in early May. The beer will be available on some of our Music Trains and in local pubs both along the line and also further a field. The pump clip for the beer on the bar will feature a Northern Rail Train on the Penistone Line and the plan is to produce some small posters to put on display at the pubs selling the beer explaining a little about The Summer Wine Brewery, the Beer and of course The Penistone Line Partnership - thus expanding coverage of the line and the Music Trains far and wide...
And the very first batch of beer will be making the short journey from the Summer Wine Brewery at Honley by Penistone line train, yes that's right we plan to deliver the beer right to The Head of Steam's door, (well ok platform two at Huddersfield) were the barrels will be rolled down the platform to the pubs cellars - a very appropriate and environmentally friendly way of delivering our Special Beer... Watch local press for more details.
The Summer Wine Brewery supplied the beer for the Christmas Music Train and very popular it was too, so it is great to have them onboard to produce us our very own Special Beer - Chairman Neil Bentley explained that over the past year we have been increasingly selling beer made locally within a few miles of The Penistone Line on the Music Trains and its great to support the micro-breweries in the area.
The first Music Train with the Penistone Line Rail Ale beer is expected to be the Jazz Train with the ever popular Train Gang on Monday 18th May.

Train driver Neil Bentley never tires of the view from his cab during the uphill trek from Huddersfield to Penistone, one of England's highest market towns at 750ft above sea level (and reputedly England's coldest railway station).A speed limit of 50mph allows him time to appreciate the view."My favourite is from Honley over the Pennines.After Denby Dale you can see all the way to Wakefield and the power stations."He also marvels at the massive viaducts, deep cuttings and the 1,631-yard Thurstonland Tunnel."A lot of lines follow the contours but this one just cuts straight through."Mr Bentley is chairman of the Penistone Line Partnership, a group that adopted the line 10 years ago and created what has been described as "Britain's number one fun railway".
Mr Bentley says there is plenty of scope to reduce costs on branch lines while maintaining safety and services.He and his colleagues do not see the plans as handing over the branch lines to a "Dad's Army" nor do they believe a "Beeching Mark 2" is in the offing, as some people have predicted."Around 150 years ago they went to great lengths to build this railway â€" let's make use of it," said Mr Bentley.
