rails around bristol harbour
Some rails remain on the north side of the harbour.
SS Great Britain station.
Tracks on the harbourside.
A nice trip round Bristol harbour today, after stunning tapas at El Puerto - a real find!
Nothing running of course, and doubtful that anything ever will on the north side. But there is a short section of operational railway on the south side of the harbour, the Bristol Harbour Railway. Steam passenger trains do run on this railway for a short distance a few times a year. This line will be extended a few hundred metres in 2011 when the new museum is opened. There's a small station at the SS Great Britain end of the line.
