Yesterday saw us visit Abbeydale Minature Railway, where Alan is also a member. This volunteer run railway is tucked away in Abbeydale woods and could easliy be one of Sheffield’s best kept secrets. Despite this, a lot of people turned up to take an adternoon ride on the trains and we were quite busy in the tent.
Harry had his Wilesco steam roller on display and also took delivery of his newly acquired Stevenson’s Rocket from yours truely, which also immediately went onto the stand. Andy had just a small part of his collection of old telephones at the event, while Alan had most of his Mamod models there. Unfortunately Dave couldn’t be with us, but he did send along his minature fairground, which was running using the specially built pay-box as a way of encouraging donations from the public.
The weather was warm and sunny and a large crowd was in attendance, no doubt helped by the free admission to the site. We hope to be back at Abbeydale soon, so watch this space for further details!
