I'd seen it on a BBC TV property program and the point made was that
the narrow guage rails were actually used in WWI for supplies to troops
at the Somme.
As I rode on the train, I couldn't help but think that my grandad who
took part in the battle may have seen some of the rails I was using.
The locomotive was "Norfolk
Heroine"named after Edith Cavell
There are things for teh kids bty
lineside e.g. elf's hut
or fairy mushrooms
A game bird flees from the train....
earlier use of the track, lineside poppies were evocative
Most of the track is straight,
A previous intermediate station
Many bridges on the line
At Wighton, some of the
original platform still exists
........and carriages, some awaiting
renovation, and some in good shape.
