Imagine being a construction worker building that railroad in an Alaskan winter. brrrrrrrr!
Do you know what type of 4-4-0 Hattons will be doing? Is it one of the Bachmann Americans?

It looks like the one they featured in Channel 5's 'Monster Moves' where they shifted it up Train Mountain to a museum site.

Had another nice trip in Austria along the Zillertal valley, narrow gauge heritage railway hauled by



Lovely views



and the modern stuff for those of that persuasion



a parting shot



We were accompanied by some nutter on an acordion whose redeeming feature was that he dished out Schnaps! We reached a cable car station where we were booked on 2 stages but as the bar at the second was being refurbed I only made it to the first!

Built in Bristol



Another beautifully build Bristol product - built just 3 miles from my house ! Bristol's locomotive building history is something i'm very proud of.
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

Just had a cheapo 2 night stay in Devon 2 miles from Paignton, so I said to HiD how about a nice scenic train ride, so got the bus and 10 minutes later we're at the Dartmouth Steam Railway! So hopped on the Devon Belle!



HiD the best seat in the house



taking on water for the trip!



Braveheart our Loco of the day



on the run to Kingswear



The only station in the country never to receive a train on the Quay at Dartmouth (they couldn't arrange a bridge!)



For the return trip we double headed with Lydham Manor which was on trial after maintenance



Waiting for us at Paignton was some damned Yankee!



Lovely day out, helped with a few beers and a lovely Crab sandwich in Dartmouth, then on the bus to Torquay and a couple more beers before our meal. The following day we went up the road to the Dart Valley Railway.

Thanks for those super pictures.
That observation car is amazing. We managed to nab the front seats about 3 years ago. Super view.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

Splendid pictures; thank you.  I really like this line.  The 'Devon Belle' is fantastic on the Up journey as it is right behind the locomotive.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Great pictures, David. I've been wondering if you've been out and about lately! Looks like you had lovely weather. The observation car looks great. I like the locomotives too.  :thumbsup:

Bealman and Mrs Bealman are off to Japan on Thursday, armed with a 21 day railpass, so hopefully I can reciprocate the pics!   :beers:
