Unusual gauge railway – Faversham

The Faversham Miniature Railway is notable for its unusual gauge of 9 inches.runs through the grounds of the National Fruit Collection at Brogdale Farm, which was hosting the annual ‘Cherry Festival’ at the time of my visit. There are a number of similar events throughout the year, but an admission charge is levied in addition to the train ticket.

Of the two trains in service, one was hauled by A Class 31 locomotive built in 2014. Here it is seen running through the orchards.
