Southport – Pier Pleasure

The May edition of The Railway Magazine has a 6 page article entitled Pier Pleasure all about the pier railways of the UK of which we are told there used to be more than a dozen.

Few are left now but here in Sunny Southport we still have one and there is a short write up about the history of our local pier railway together with a photo of the Silver Belle diesel powered train which ran on the pier up until the 1970’s.

The photo is amongst my Flickr shots at:- www.flickr.com/photos/86659476@N07/15748367594/in/photolist-pZCv2d-nB5wK3-njPo5G-qWy4zN
