BETTER HURRY, TO MAKE IT THERE BY NOVEMBER FIRST!
Yesterday, I spent a relaxing day at Bressingham Steam and Gardens. The sun was shining, the trains were running and there was a smell of coal smoke in the air – who could ask for more!
First, a trip on the 10 ¼ inch (260mm) gauge garden railway with loco ‘Alan Bloom’. Built at Bressingham in 1995 it was inspired by the large quarry Hunslets.
The garden railway is, erm, lightly balasted. In fact the sleepers sit directly on the ground.
The gardens, designed by Alan Bloom himself, looked fantastic.
I wasn’t the only visitor 🙂
The Garden Railway is a baloon loop. The train stops in the station, the loco is uncoupled and runs onto a turntable.
The loco turns, runs around the train and is coupled up for the next journey.
The 2 feet (600mm) gauge ‘Fen Railway’ was running too. Bevan came to Bressingham in 2007…
