Mad Bess at Woody Bay on the Ruislip Lido RailwayThis weeks Throwback Thursday takes us back to October 2015 as we see Mad Bess in steam on the Ruislip Lido Railway.

Mad Bess and the Ruislip Lido Railway

Mad Bess is 2–4–0 saddle tank locomotive built by the Society between 1986 and 1998.

The loco is based on Blanche from the Ffestiniog Railway and joins the other 6 Diesel Locomotives based at the Ruislip Lido Railway.

The Ruislip Lido Railway is Britain’s longest 12 inch gauge railway, based in Ruislip, West London. At over 1 mile long, the railway runs from Willow Lawn Station to Woody Bay (For the sheds and Lido).

Check the Ruislip Lido Railway website for information on when Mad Bess is next in steam. [At the time of writing the next date was Sunday 13th November 2016]
