Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'
Sunday, May 24, 2009
We went to visit the SS Great Britain today and this took me totally by surprise. It's the Bristol Harbour Railway, probably the only heritage line in the UK without a website, and it was running today. Currently it runs for about half a mile but will be extended in 2011 to the new industrial museum. Passenger vehicles are converted goods vehicles, which must have been great fun in today's heat and sun! This section of line was used a few years ago by a Parry People Mover. Unusually the line is operated by the city council, who clearly know a good thing when they see it!
