The Latest News Update:

In the meantime ....

David's new ELR coal fired NG/G16 locomotive is seen, below, as a reminder of the delights of this line.

The Pear Tree Light Railway is a 32mm gauge line with continuous running and shunting facilities and is mostly at ground level, with shunting and steam up areas raised above ground level by approximately 1200mm. It has a minimum track radius of 4 ft. 6 ins. and the loading gauge clearances are 150 mm width and 190 mm height. There is no track power on this line. The ruling gradient on this line is 1:72.

The first of a series of new garden projects at this line was commenced last autumn and Janet's new hobby room, which is facing the garden, is now approaching completion. David is hopeful that it won't be too long before a start can be made on the new railway shed in the garden, and then the PTLR running tracks will be re-aligned.


Until then, and of necessity, train services on this line have been suspended.


More news updates, and hopefully some photographs, will follow in due course!
