    Default Trainspotting


    I managed to drag my young lad out for an explore which makes a change as exploring dosent come with a screen attached so hes not really that interested any more (any of you with teenage children will laugh anyway)
    Everyone loves trains & this is a really easy explore so we had a butchers, Im assuming these are surplus from the nearby heritage railway as they are a real mix bag of rolling stock.
    Either way they are now marooned on their own small stretch of line slowly decaying!

    apologies a bit pic heavy this one

    Nice photos. Didn't realize any "Dogfish" wagons, the ballast wagon with the 3 hand wheel things, got preserved.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    unfortunately dosent look like they will be preserved, but at the moment they r in good nick, all the wheels & opening flaps still work which we had fun with :-)

    Nice find Glynn. Yes, I think everybody loves trains too - at least on here.
    You've got me wondering which railway this could be...

    They were taken on as a 'working' set for the already mentioned railway - now kept 'just in case' I think, beats laying ballast from a bucket on a JCB! There were a few more dotted around the preservation world, but I think most ended up under the cutting torch.

    Yes, it's just come to me. I walked the track and photoed these very wagons four years ago. Small world, eh?
