The Wythall Miniature Railway, near Birmingham, is holding a Standard Gauge Running Day this August as miniature versions of full size BR steam locomotives operate services.
Based in the grounds of The Transport Museum, Wythall, the railway will welcome well-known miniature locomotives owned by members and friends of the Elmdon Miniature Engineering Society will visit the railway.
Locomotives will include an LMS Black 5, GWR King, GWR ‘dock tank’, GWR Prairie tank and a Southern Railway Q class.
More visiting locomotives are also expected and is the first standard gauge event run by the railway, which normally operates replica and free lance locomotives.
Reece Greenstreet, EMES Chairman, said: ‘Here at Wythall we pride ourselves in delivering a great miniature railway experience for children of all ages but our members always look forward to running their own works of engineering art ‘after hours’. At this event we have decided to go public with our fleet – you won’t be disappointed’.
