CHRIS BULLEN, the long-time former owner and operator of Poole Park Railway, has wasted no time in establishing a new 10¼in gauge public line at Honeybrook, a farm park, which is on the B3078 road, a couple of miles north of Wimborne Minster, Dorset.
The initial 1,000m of track were laid in a matter of days, with the first trains run on April 8. The line is to be doubled in length with additional facilities added, including a loco shed and workshop.
There is a cash-only admission charge to the park, which is open on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-6pm, and includes one train ride. See website www.honeybrook.org.
