A couple of weeks ago, my wife and I had a trip on the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway in Norfolk. Yes, it's 10.25" gauge and four miles long. (the longest in the world, we're told)
We were seated I coach behind the engine going towards Walsingham and in the same coach for the return journey. We were lucky with the weather as it was cloudy but dry on the journey and started to rain as we were leaving the site.
I thought you all might like to see some pictures.
Before we had a trip on the Wells to Wallsingham railway we took a walk along by the harbour and took these pictures from on top of the path alongside the road.
They are of a little 10 ¼ gauge railway that runs for about a mile to the Pinewoods Holiday Park. Howard is an 0-6-0 steam outline engine that is powered by a Perkins 3cylinder diesel engine that drives a Lindey hydraulic drive.
WONDERFUL...EXCELLENT...I need MORE! That little Garratt makes my mouth water, I am drooling all over the 'puter! 10.25" gauge...Hmmm..in my scale, I might be able to use N gauge stuff. The old mind is reeling. Thanks for this.
