There are moorhens in the lake, and giant dragonflies flitting about in the purple heather on the heath. There are deer grazing peacefully no great distance from the main path, just yards from the railway. And on the railway, today, is a Peacock – a Beyer Peacock, built in 1879. It makes Colin McAndrew, 103 years old, look modern. There will be more photos and video, in due course, on the “Rail Diaries” pages.
