Bank Holiday Monday – here’s somewhere we haven’t been before, and with luck we’ll be driving in the opposite direction to everyone else… A most enjoyable little outing to a most enjoyable little railway. Visit “Little Hay” on Geoff’s Rail Diaries for more photos, and a video trip around the lines.
Just published to Geoff’s Rail Diaries – photos and a brief account of our visit this afternoon to Blists Hill, to see lots of fascinating steam-powered machinery in action. Go to “Blists Hill in steam” – now!
Fri. 19 May: 60103 “Flying Scotsman” is due to haul “The Cathedrals Express” south from Shrewsbury. I’d better go and see that. It’s a day of sunny intervals – there’s plenty of blue sky, but quite a lot of cloud too. These trains can sometime run a little late – but not on this occasion. It was one or two minutes early through All Stretton, which was a great pity – if it had been on time, the sun would have been shining…
Just published to Geoff’s Rail Diaries – “Santa Steam ’16” – photos and video from Sunday’s trip to the Severn Valley Railway, to see the Santa trains catching the golden light of a December afternoon.
Just published to “Geoff’s Rail Diaries”, an account with pictures and video of our trip to the Forest of Dean last Saturday, to visit the Alan Keef open day and the Lea Bailey Light Railway. Viewers of the video will discover how the Lea Bailey EIMCO got its name “Whistling Pig”… Visit “Alan Keef and the Whistling Pig” – now!
Monorails, in other words! Just published to Geoff’s Rail Diaries, “Monorail” – photos and an account of our visit to Nantmawr, to view the amazing collection of monorail equipment. Also – a ride on the standard gauge line, and a brief visit to the Cambrian Railways line at Llynclys
