Over the hottest weekend ever (temperatures of up to quarante-deux!) Stephen Wiggs and I visited the Le Petit Anjou railway in the Loire Valley. This a is a one metre gauge line and a little of it remains at La Roche station just outside Angers where a team are working hard to restore the old station building and run a loco and two beautifully restored carriages. In many ways a very similar project to Steamworks and, like us, they hope to extend out of the site if they can.
It was a very enjoyable trip (not financed by theTrust I hasten to add). They were a great bunch and made us very welcome. We will stay in touch
