visit to ASHMANHAUGH LIGHT RAILWAY

Postby Rockley Bottom » Sun Oct 04, 2009 6:16 pm

Went on a visit to today and took a few pics.
It is a great place and for the 009 boys they will have a field day.
Met Dave who seems to run the place and they will be pleased to see us. I suggest we go on a day they have a club meeting so we can have good look in the sheds and play with the trains

Looks very interesting Ralph. Is it an 'out & back' track plan?

:idea: Looks good for a GnOrfolkers visit.

No ta Ralph, not my cup of tea. The engineering is incredible though. I prefer the maroon one, and those buildings 8)
From memory Dave it it very similar track layout to Katham House in 4' x 2' form.

Hi Dave

The track is there and back on several loops. They have planted screenig trees around the track. When they mature it will screen the track plan. I thought that the whole set up was great, and I look forward to a return visit.

The woodern loco called "The Thunderer" was a read eye catcher. It suited this type of layout and the kids loved it

The track plan can be clearly seen on Google's aerial view.
