    few of my photos from the fawley forester - feel free to add your pics or videos :)

    thoroughly enjoyable railtour, especially on a train i hadnt been on before, £15 from eastleigh to fawley return...dont mind if i do!

    always wanted to go down the fawley line and it was an interesting ride/line to explore, shame we couldnt go right to the end of the line as we where only aloud as far as "fawlay ground frame" i think it was called which where the gates to the site

    also supprised to see a network southeast trolly still dotting about :lol:

    I popped across the road on Saturday evening to catch 1001 ambling east along the NDL at Brockham.

    It seemed remarkably empty when I saw it. I hope they covered their costs.

    It's a shame I'd already booked on the HST tour to Minehead, riding on a Thumper to Marchwood would have been a treat! (Admittedly it's the wrong class to be authentic, but close enough ;) )

    it was emptier than you would have thought, plenty of spare seats, in the non motor coaches anyway

    i think a lot of it is because they only take cheque as payment and not everyone can do that, where as all the others companies ive seen you can pay in most ways

    nse trollys..nse red doors and lamp posts...i guess were still in that decade down here :P
