Just a guess, but is it the Tenterten's extension?

I was going to suggest somewhere on MCR metals, but actually on balance I think Mountsorrel looks quite likely!

A good shout, but are they not back up and running? The scenery doesn't quite look right to be South Devon either... apologies if I'm wrong!

Maybe Stu was using painted cardboard in the background and this is really his stealth entry for the 2012 challenge?

It looks like the KESR extension by the scenery, but I've learnt the road and know it's not that one.

Yep, Heslton Railway is correct, this is the end ( so far) pushing towards Water-ma-Trout.
They have almost 3/4 mile laid, and brake van rides up to this end, then back past the station to the other and back to the station again.

Good to see this progress. Perhaps they'll have a guest steam loco or two in the near future, a small Prairie would be nice!

They did have a steam loco last year, I was told at times there were 3 brakevan loads of people waiting to ride ( at 20 people at a time ).

There are a few decent photo opportunites along the line, especially near the two over bridges. They are also getting a 3-car dmu centre coach to provide more passenger transport.

Also, whatever happens with Trevano Garden should not affect the railway, including access.

It looks delightful, but the passengers' experience will be greatly enhanced if those trees on the embankment could eventually be cleared away .

Apparently just around that bend are views across to the sea.

Sounds like they are making some very good progress.
