April Oddities on the Picnic Field Railway, Saffron Walden, Essex
From Date: 1st Apr 2017
To Date: 1st Apr 2017April 1st is the opening day of our 2017 season so what better way to start than with some weird and wonderful locos, and those which aren't quite what they seem to be...
Pictured is vertical-boilered Sentinel Steam Railcar No 7.
Our club loco ELEKTRA - built using the motor of an electric floor polisher which fell off a loading bay! - will head up the passenger service.
The Picnic Field Railway (www.swdsme.org.uk) is in the grounds of Lord Braybrooke's Audley End Railway (10 1/4"). Public access to the site is by the purchase of an AER admission ticket so why not take the opportunity to ride the "broad gauge" too!
