The Lavender Line
For some time now the Lavender Line has considered installing a 5 inch gauge railway on the grass verge on platform 2. A few months ago a new member of the railway approached our chairman with an idea of donating a few hundred yards of track to enable a new miniature railway to be built.
After months of painstaking work carried out by our very own chairman and other members the new 5 inch gauge railway is very near completion, with all the underlay and ballast now laid, track has already begun to be laid along the new foundations as far as the overflow car park with plans to extend in the next few weeks.
Once completed the new miniature railway will be in operation over selected Sundays throughout the summer, it is hoped in the near future steam will be used along the new attraction but until then a replica diesel service will be in operation.
