Locomotives make first appearance at annual Rudyard Lake steam gala

TWO miniature locomotives have made their first appearance at the Rudyard Lake Railway annual gala. 

Nellie and Empress joined the lakeside railway’s other engines for this weekend’s popular attraction.

An intensive timetable, featuring both freight and passenger trains, kept visitors entertained.

The railway operates a three-mile return journey for passengers along the banks of the lake.

Other attractions at the gala have included miniature traction engines and a model railway.
