Wells and Walsingham Light Railway August 2018
Lovely line went their many years ago
In August our family holiday took us to the north Norfolk coast and my treat was a visit to the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway (WWLR).
I do like the WWLR. The two main locos are 10¼ inch gauge 2-6-0 + 0-6-2 Garratts. It’s easy to describe them like that, but when you stop and think about it a 10¼ inch gauge Garrett is really rather special. On this visit the rostered loco was Norfolk Heroine. Last time I visited it was the sister loco Norfolk Hero. Now I have been hauled by both locos and I can say that I’ve completed the set. (Dangerous train spotter tendencies are emerging here!)
Perhaps the thing I like the most about the WLR is the relaxed atmosphere. The staff are friendly and talkative and the line feels like a sleepy rural line without some of the fancy polish you see on some tourist…
