    For those in the Southampton area there will be steam on the railway this afternoon. No 3 0-6-2 tank is being tested for the December Santa trains which will operate on 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th with either No. 3 or one of the other locos.

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    Shouldn't this be in the miniature rather than the narrow gauge section?

    Yup, as it's below 15" gauge.

    Thanks Al. The Santa trains are all for pre booked travel only but the trains can be photographed on the one mile circuit. Peter and Helen at the railway would welcome donations from photographers and would be happy to show visitors the stock on normal running days which are all weekends and school holidays. Trains are usually hauled by one of the Western outline DH locos but the Santa trains are steam which also works trains on other selected days. I usually know in advance and will try to post here
