Bredgar & Wormshill Light Railway 2022 #2

The great thing about the B&WLR is that the railway is a ‘real’ narrow gauge locomotive, not a miniature railway.  The locomotives have all had previous lives in Welsh quarries, or German railways.  Our spot in the engine shed (cleaned up for the model railways, fortunately) was close to a door, and we could see, hear, and smell, the trains passing by…

Getting up steam for the day….

Awaiting the first passengers of the day.  These little diesels have so few controls that I think I could have stepped into the cab and run one successfully.

And the service in full swing.  An almost continuous string of trains ran along the short line all day, but all properly signalled, and with the appropriate single line token.

The last of my pictures are a coach bogie under construction, and an interesting line of vehicles…

But Michael kindly passed on his photos to me, so here are a few more.

Trains – including running round at the end of the line….

Some other vehicles….

A fine traction engine….

And the regular visit from an American fire truck.  You could climb to the top of the ladder – but we didn’t.

All in all, a fun weekend.
