Going back in time to the days of the original Thorne Memorial Park Miniature Railway .
The Summer Festival Event 2010 was a very busy weekend plenty of sunshine for the visiting Midland unit and the resident electric locomotive "John L Stokes" driven by former D&D member David Stubbins. A new page has been added to the From the Digital Archives in addition to the original.
Bob's Railway Days on Platform 2 website reaches 61 pages.
Work on the website today takes it to 70 pages with loads of information, articles and photographs. A challenge now to keep track of the pages that are put into the files for archiving. Not sure how I will be able to keep yet more pages since the first one that became independent of the website for the Thorne Memorial park Miniature Railway pages. This is the link to the first Bob's Railway Days on Platform 2. Enough of nostalgia lets have a look at the latest photographs of places visited as July draws to a close. Just a reminder the now named ThornePark Railway will be in operation for the 2016 Summer Festival see their Facebook Page for further details.
A Weekend in North and east Lincolnshire and East Lindsey
Friday 22nd July 2016 and a visit to the Cleethorpes Coastal Light Railway just as the weather had turned wet. The Platforms 1 & 2 and the tracks have now been taken over by the famous Smallest Pub in the UK on this occasion.
The Crowle Peatlands Railway
The Crowle Peatland Railway Society has been formed to promote the heritage and history of the peat railways on Crowle & Thorne Moors. The initial intention was to restore a Simplex loco that used to work on the moors. However they have subsequently been able to purchase a couple of Schoma locos that were amongst the last locos to be used of the moors.
The locos are now in temporary storage whilst we complete negotiations with North Lincolnshire Council on the building of a maintenance shed and running track on Crowle Moors. For further information please visit their website
