Marvellous! I love these old railways and there seem to be more than ever. Is it near you? If you go and take some pictures please share them. :)

100 miles away - Although it was sent to one of my email addys it down loads to DTs PC & he sent it on to me - so it's looking promising for a visit - otherwise he would have deleted it without saying anything!!! :))

Been there by canal a few years ago - a beautiful part of the country.

Now it appears there is an extra reason to go again. :ymapplause:

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.

Here's some 'Hot off the Press' News: It is planned that 'Rebuilt' Bulleid Pacific 'West Country Class' 34028 'Eddystone' will vist the Churnet Valley Railway (from The Swanage Railway) over the weekend of 13th & 14th November, to join in the celebrations for the opening of their line extension. Other locomotives expected will include 71000 'Duke of Gloucester'.

[Also, there are plans for 'Original' Bulleid Pacific 'Battle of Britain Class' 34070 'Manston' to visit The Severn Valley Railway mid-September and then go on to The North Yorkshire Moors Railway for the first weekend in October].
