Latest News Page July 2012

My steam locomotive Remus at the Sandtoft Transport Centre in March 1996 being steamed for public service at the museum for the first time. To the right the locomotive is now in storage after operating at the miniature railway in Thorne Memorial Park for about 10 years. There are now plans for it to visit other similar railways.

Out and about at the Summer Festival Event  2012 

This is the main annual event of the year held in Thorne Memorial Park in Thorne Near Doncaster. The event was in danger of being cancelled after the terrible weather of May, June and early July. The park was water logged until the now famous "Jet Stream" moved northwards stopping the endless low pressures and their torrential rainfall coming across England. After two weeks of drier and sunnier weather the park dried out fairly quickly so the event was given the go ahead. Below is a selection of some of photographs taken of the event on Saturday 28th July of the two day event.   

For further photographs of the event go to the

Three trains rides, Two tram rides and one bus ride 29th July 2012
