After all the problems a couple of weeks ago I have reposted the two pictures that were not able to be looked at, leading up to my Christmas "specials" from Wednesday to Friday and I promise this will be the last train picture I will post for a while.
One of the most interesting, and smaller, railways in the Midlands is the Foxfield Railway near Blyth Bridge, Stoke-on-Trent.
The main function of the railway is the preservation of small industrial locomotives but they do, of course, run a good number of passenger trains. Part of the uniqueness of this railway is a very steep incline up which the small locos have to work really hard, particularly when they are hauling rakes of preserved wagons, and at the other end of the line is a preserved coal mine which is being turned into a heritage centre which I believe will soon be fully open.
This small railway is well worth a visit and their website is at http://www.foxfieldrailway.co.uk/index.htm
