Last week I visited England and the very first day, fresh out of the Eurotunnel, I stumbled across an interesting miniature railway in Hasting. 
I did not travel it but walked along the line (the whole 600 yards...). Here's an impression.  Engine on duty is the steam-outline diesel-powered locomotive Princess Swee' Pea.






















Wikipedia: Hastings Miniature Railway10 14 in (260 mm)[/color] gauge miniature railway located on the seafront at Hastings, a seaside resort, town, and ancient cinque port, in East SussexEngland. Opened in 1948, it remains a popular tourist attraction to the present day. The line was re-opened in the summer of 2011 after a period of reconstruction and restoration, which coincided with a forced closure of the eastern part of the line, to facilitate building work on a new art gallery adjacent to the railway. More history and engines etc.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hastings_Miniature_Railway
and: http://www.miniaturerailwayworld.co.uk/Hastings.html




Halfway the route this gentleman is building a huge and impresive modelship entirely from scrap. It was really a beautifull model.
