Amberley? I used to be a regular at their railway galas but have not been fr a couple of years now.

I have a couple of friends (man and wife) who are volunteers there. Both are qualified the drive the diesels and the steam locos. They are both heavily involved with the Lynton and Barnstable Railway, too.
Chris: I share your enthusiasm for these little railways and the people for whom this is almost a religious calling..

Yes, Amberley

There is not much place for the driver of the train.
Chris: But he is happy to do this all day Philine. The railway might not be full size but it satisfies his deep inner cravings to me an engine driver..

Christmas Day ...every day.
Chris: I suspect what you say is not untrue
I love these little railways
Chris: It is delightful that some, as this example at Amberley in Sussex, survive doing useful work

it looks a bit cramped in that cab
Chris: Maybe that is all part of the fun?
I was looking at a documentary yesterday about the Longleat Estate, Chris, where they mentioned a derailing accident of their miniature train. Hopefully, this one will remain firmly on its tracks.
Chris: Hopefully this will Bev. The railway here is an ex industrial line into a commercial chalk pit, the Longleat example being a toy railway for kiddies
That's an odd little tanky!
Chris: Sweet isn't it Tom.

Situated at Amberley in Sussex, where I went last week
I like these small gauge railways, we went on the Bure Valley Railway in Norfolk in June, a few photos coming up in due course.
