Alderney Railway Trackside 2016 Mannez Quarry to Braye Road
Now for the next video, we head south to what must be the UK’s most southerly railway….in the channel islands on the island of Alderney!! We view the line from the Lineside & follow the train as it travels from the original Mannez Quarry terminus, down to its trunked current terminus at Braye Road. The line originally continued to the inner harbour and along the top of the three quarter mile breakwater. The train consists of a 1949 built Vulcan Boundary ‘Drewey’ shunter ‘Elizabeth’, which is powered by a 6-cylinder, 135 hp Gardiner diesel engine. The coaches are a pair of Ex-London Transport, Northern Line, Driving Control Trailers of 1959 vintage. Certainly would make for an interesting model railway layout.
