East Suffolk Light Railway

8th October 2020

The 2ft gauge East Suffolk Light Railway station at the East Anglian Transport Museum in Lowestoft.

The van is the sole remaining item of 3ft gauge rolling stock from the Southwold Railway.

Simplex loco "Orford Ness" with its 3 coach train being prepared, under Covid-19 conditions, for passengers to board.

Departure from the station.

Arriving at Woodside station currently the limit of operation.

View from train as passengers not allowed to detrain here under Covid-19 rules.

The Simplex runs round its train. Beyond the barrier an extension will cross the tram track and double the length of the run.

Awaiting departure from Woodside.

The impressive running shed with 2 more Simplex locos and a Ruston.

"Orford Ness" on the return from Woodside with a trolleybus running on the adjacent road.

Returning to Chapel Road.

An interesting railway - I look forward to returning once the extension is open!
