This year provided the perfect summer for a visit to the East Anglian Garden Railway show at Bressingham. Sunshine all day ensured that photography outside the somewhat dark model hall would be perfect.
After spending the morning chatting to people among the models, I was able to enjoy a ride on the 2ft gauge railway and a quick look at the miniature traction engines and steam lorries in the area.
I suppose the place is the ultimate garden railway, or collection of railways. I was pleasently surprised how long the train ride was and just how interesting the scenery it passed through would be. Once a market garden, it's all a bit run-down now, but you can see what was there years ago.
As it is, there is plenty of small railways interest to entertain the enthusiast while the rest of the family goes for one of their 3 free rides on the gallopers.
Much as I love shiny steam engines, the scruffy locos used to do the work when the public aren't around hold just as much appeal to my eyes.
