The Mornington Railway

This is one of the closest preserved railways to where I live, but I'm ashamed to say, I have not visited them. Craig Walton wrote to me to invite me to a festival weekend, but unfortunately, I was out of town at the time! But Craig took a few excellent pictures of the occasion, and I've put some of them up on this page. Hopefully, I might be able to add a few of my own soon.
