Ernest Henry Upton visits

Over the weekend of 9/10 November we played host to a visiting steam locomotive ‘Ernest Henry Upton’.

Built by Guest Engineering in 1937, Ernest is a classic park railway steam locomotive, and normally lives at the Eastleigh Lakeside Railway near Southampton.

Despite poor weather on the Saturday Ernest’s visit proved popular and has set in train plans for next year!

Many thanks to Rob from Eastleigh for letting us borrow Ernest, and Dan from Hastings Miniature Railway for helping with transport.
