Simplexes at Work – 22 April 2008


The miniature railway in Barking Park has languished, unused for over three years now, but thanks to the revitalisation of the Park it has been decided to re-open the railway. The original gauge of 9.5” is being replaced by a 7.25” gauge railway. The locomotive, ‘LITTLE NAN’ is in store and it is hoped that it will be overhauled and re-gauged to run again. It is planned to open the railway the second week of July and run every weekend until August. More news will follow as the railway progresses.

RLSR Mini Gala

On the 18th may, The Rudyard Lake Steam Railway is holding a mini gala (minus a visiting engine) for the heywood group who are visiting.
This isn’t a main event in the 2008 season, but pupil trains will be running as normal, with a two train service.
Five steam locomotives should be in service so it will be worth coming down for a visit
