This technical visit has been cancelled - The Fawley Hill Museum have cancelled all open days in 2021.
IRSE Minor Railway Section apologises to all those who were looking forward to visiting this unique Museum which includes a working 1¼ mile long standard gauge railway, complete with signalling and signal boxes on the steepest adhesion-worked railway line in the UK with a ruling gradient of 1:13. Trains are usually worked by the Huntswell Clarke 0-6-0T steam locomotive built in 1913 and used on McAlpine civil engineering contracts. The signal box was from the Midland Railway, recovered from Shobnall Maltings near Burton on Trent. The collections in the museum of railway history and through the grounds, contain displays of items which will interest everyone. Trains run throughout open afternoons until 16:30 and are free to visitors.
The section hopes to run this event in 2021.
