more track on the S&D!
(News via John Penny)
Exciting news for 2012 from the Gartell Railway is that there is a Northern Extension across Common Lane (that's the 'hump' you've crossed when visiting them in the past!) and rails are now back in the road for the first time for about 45 years. There is a new station under construction to be called 'Tower View' there being a good view of Alfred's Tower in the distance. Whilst this may be 'only' 400 metres, it seems a lot further being in narrow gauge, and the whole operation becomes even more interesting as you will cross the line from Common Lane station and then over the road, as well as interesting goings on at Pinesway Junction - a true 'Junction' at last!
