Remembering Shepton Mallet

Once again, we’re away this week at the ‘New Wine’ church conference.  But our visits to the Bath & West Showground near Shepton Mallet, Somerset, in the south-west of the UK are over – the conference has moved to the East of England Showground, near Peterborough.

Each year I have posted a few shots of the miniature railway that is on the Showground, run by the East Somerset Society of Model & Experimental Engineers.  Their interests include locos and stock in 3½”, 5″ and 7¼” gauges (just a little larger than ‘N’ gauge), and they have an extensive line, a lot of which is dual gauge for the larger two scales.  Each year at New Wine, ESSMEE used to open up the railway for the day and offer rides for all and sundry.  I’ve reposted the pick of my photographs from over the years below, and you can read more about this little railway at http://www.essmee.org.uk/ .
