Saltburn Miniature Railway

Bob charging Blacklock R - the SMR's steam loco - with compressed air,
to move it back into the shed following maintenance work
Saltburn Miniature Railway is a 15" gauge line which runs from the seaside to a wooded gorge.

See the TR blog post for 30 July 2016 about Railways in Saltburn, most of which still exist - although the cliff lift is currently undergoing refurbishment.
