Description:We are looking towards Rudyard's railway bridge on a sunny day in 1957.

A small narrow guage railway now runs for a mile or so along a strech of the former track bed in the summer months.

It is an ideal way for visitors to experience the fantastic scenery, whilst enjoying the sound and smell of a steam engine.

Diesel engines are also used.

Note that the long platforms reach over the road bridge, recalling the memory that trains with eight or more coaches once stopped here.
