The Watercress Line

On the Saturday afternoon of my recent holiday i travelled down from Woking to Alton which is where the "Watercress Line" or Mid-Hants Railway joins the mainline. I travelled up this lovely line which runs along the edge of the South Downs in Hampshire stopping off at Ropley, where there is an engineering workshop, and the terminus at Alfresford. You can see my photos here.

Its funny, but after a lifetime of never seeing the British Railways 9F steam locomotive (the last to be built) in motion i've now seen 2 in a week (at this railway and the SVR last week!)
