Before the closure of our railway our
facilities provide an attractively landscaped raised level track of
1,950 feet with a minimum radius of 43 feet. This accommodated
3.1/2" and 5 " gauges and smaller 7.1/4" locomotives (such as standard
0-4-0 or 0-6-0 tank engines or riding trucks). Our track was fully signalled which
were mostly automatically
controlled by proximity switches.
We had a large workshop. kitchen and clubhouse alongside an 8 road
steaming bay and turntable with 12v electrics with a hydraulic lift for
unloading, as well as parking and toilet facilities.
