The Minor Railways Section have gained access to a number of tickets for one of the Fawley Hill Railway Museum's Invitation Days.
These exclusive invitation days offer the opportunity for visitors to ride on the railway from Somersham to Inverernie and back and access to the private museum containing a huge collection of railway artifacts.This is a most worthwhile visit, as this unique museum includes a working 1 1/4 mile long standard gauge railway, complete with signalling and signal boxes on the steepest adhesion-worked railway line in the UK with a ruling gradient of 1:13. Trains are often worked by the Hunteswell Clarke 0-6-0T steam locomotive built in 1913 and used on McAlpine civil engineering contracts. The signal box was from the Midland Railway, recovered from Shobnall Maltings near Burton on Trent.The museum opens at 12:00, with the adjacent free car park opening at 11:30. Trains run throughout the afternoon until 16:30.There is a registration fee of £20 per person for this visit.
