Rudyard Lake Steam Railway
Preparing "Excalibur" for a run
The 10¼" gauge railway at Rudyard Lake normally runs at weekends and during school holidays. We were surprised to find that there was an engine in steam today and that a train was run along the 1½ miles of track. We took a trip with Button and two friends from Ireland.
