30 July 2006 (continued)
Our other visit on this very pleasant afternoon was to England’s most northerly tourist railway – the Heatherslaw Light Railway, about 9 miles south-west of Berwick. The 15″ gauge line follows the meanders of the Till for almost 2 miles between Heatherslaw Mill and Etal village. The locomotive, “The Lady Augusta” is a little 0-4-2 built by Brian Taylor (better known for the Kirklees Light Railway). She seemed a tad underpowered for our 8-coach train (or perhaps we were just taking it easy through the very pleasant countryside)
We spent the evening, as planned, in Berwick – a stroll along the breakwater seemed a good idea on this fine evening.
