Bure Valley Railway 2/4

As a follow up to yesterdays image of No.6 Blickling Hall ready for departure from Aylsham with a train for Wroxham here the train is almost clear of the platform and already the locomotive is passing the delightful little signal box that has been built to control movements around the station. Today, by the way, is my 1500th.posting since joining Shutterchance.

First of all, Brian, congratulations on the 1500 milestone. WOW. Hard to believe, right? smile

Secondly, this would be a fun toy for anyone's backyard!

That is a milestone, 1500 pictures. Congratulations.
I love this shot, boys with their toys smile Absolute delightful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. A real boys toy but it actually provides a daily 18 miles (30 kilometers) round trip daily service during the tourist season.

Congratulations on your 1500 Brian. This little signal box is a super feature
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. They have built a delightful old fashioned box haven't they.
Yes, congrats again Brian, and good you celebrate it with a train, as you know I love the way you guys have maintained the Steam Age alive!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan. This has been laid on the track bed of a closed standard gauge railway and it is a round trip of about 30 kilometres.
Superb shot Brian. Congrats for your 1500th!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Ha ... lovely one and so so reflecting grown, mature, subservient, dutiful married men escaping to become boys again.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Richard, mind you these men, and women, do this for a living.
Well done on the 1500th Brian. Wouldn't you just love driving this?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. It would be fun to have a go on this, one would have to be Fireman too.

A wonderful nostalgic shot Brian and congratulations on such tenacity!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Sheila.
I love this shot, Brian. It has so much to look at. My favorite thing, believe it or not, is the person hanging out of the car with his camera. Congrats on 1500.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. I wonder how far the train went with the guy hanging out of the window, it is an 18 miles round trip.
Great composition Brian, I like the converging train and track and the merging of steam and cloud! Congratulations on the 1500th smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Martin.

You have certainly visited a few railways Brian, and a number of train stations!
Brian Walbey: Yes but there are still a lot more I haven't visited Chad.
Congratulations. 1500 is a lot of pictures, a lot of comments received and a lot of replies. Well done.

I like the look of the signal box, very clean and neat and tidy.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, sometimes it is difficult to keep up with pictures and comments but I do my best.
Another pleasing capture in this series Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Fred.

He'll have to watch out for low tunnels Brian
Brian Walbey: And hope it doesn't rain, which it did shortly after.
A fine photo to celebrate your 1500th post on SC Brian! Congrats to you.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
talk about leading lines... smile Lovely shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sesan, the leading lines bit was more by accident than design, but they do work well don't they.
Congrats on the 1500, Brian - and on this shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Charming scenes, Brian. Never visited it myself for some reason.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme. Sadly we didn't have time to take a ride on this lovely little train, next time perhaps.

I believe that the railway was built on the former trackbed of a standard gauge line so the driver is quite safe in standing up; no low bridges! Well done on no. 1500.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is built on the track bed of the East Norfolk Railway (Wikipedia) so indeed, no need to duck for bridges etc.
Wonderful locomotive well captured Brian... congratulations on your 1500th milestone on SC....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter.
Congratulations 1500 and still going strong, I can see the scale now of this delightful train.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. Quite a fair sized miniature train isn't it.
