photoblog image Heatherslaw Light Railway

Heatherslaw Light Railway

Yesterday I mentioned in the narrative to my collage of Etal a miniature railway that runs near to there.

The Heatherslaw Railway is a privatly owned 15"Guage railway on the Ford and Etal Estate in Northumberland, It was opened in 1989 and runs from Heatherslaw to Etal Village and has a return round trip of 6.4km. At the moment it has two Engines one Diesel named Clive and one Steam Engine The Lady Augusta.

It is a very attractive journey, if somewhat short, along the banks of a river.

This is definitely the last collage from me for some time, I now have several smaller sets of images to post over the next few weeks, plus some individuals here and there.

Re CS4 I mentioned yesterday I now realise, on a further look, that the prices for that are for the Upgrade to CS3/2 etc. but it is still cheaper to buy CS3 + the CS4 Upgrade.  Sorry if I mislead anyone.

Very sweet Brian - I've never heard of it
Brian Walbey: A real toy size railway hris, I only heard of it when we looked through some guide books before going to Northumberland.
Looks delightful Brian. Never heard of it before
Brian Walbey: It was a delightful little train Bill, one I heard about from a local guidebook.
Isn't wonderful the way people of all ages continue to have a desire to ride these trains (me included1) even in this age of technology and speed. Do we all secretly hanker for the "good old days" of smoke and steam? And fog and factories?
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would enjoy this one Sheila, it is quite small compared with even some of the Welsh narrow gauge trains.
Nice collage Brian. I have never seen a miniature railway in France!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. There are narrow gauge railways preserved on the continent but I don't really know where they are.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.
I love the three images together.

I would start thinking your are a postcard creator during the day while working.
Brian Walbey: It has been suggested that I try and sell some of my collages as postcards, these days I am a bit too old to bother. Thanks for your comment Paul.
You'd enjoy the Darjeeling Toy Train Brian...I was there couple years ago...it's brilliant http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darjeeling_Himalayan_Railway
Brian Walbey: I know I would David, there was a documentary on TV last Sunday evening about DHR which we thoroughly enjoyed.
