From Norfolk into Suffolk and back.

Some while ago we had been invited to visit the Little Orchard Railway in deepest Suffolk by Rex & Janet when they visited the ALR during our May Open Day. So on Sunday, a goodly ALR Gang (14 in all !) discovered this lovely little railway (in size but not heart!) built and operated by Rex and his very friendly 'helpers'. We had a great afternoon chatting, admiring the garden, driving trains, (even the Girls had a go !), watching trains, discussing railways and stuff, it was excellent!
Then we were treated to a very tasty BBQ followed by a variety of 'afters' including a huge chocolate Birthday cake to celebrate Helen's recent 'important' Birthday! (one of the LOR's 'helpers').
All aboard !

The railway's Number 5 and 'Glenda' were in charge of the trains, which ran more or less all afternoon non stop, and driven a lot by the youngsters!!!!!.

Kevin explains the controls to Alan.

So, if you haven't seen this super railway then you should try to get there on one of their Open Days, you won't be disapointed! (see 'www.littleorchardrailway.co.uk').


Relaxing and chatting!
