Bristol Harbour Railway and Henbury in 2009

(All 24.5.2009  Copyright Steve Sainsbury/Rail Thing)

Back in May 2009, on a lovely warm sunny day, I managed to get these shots of Henbury doing some shunting on the line.

We're often told that Health & Safety considerations mean that steam, people, unfenced harbourside and street running just don't mix and would never be 'allowed' in the UK! I'm pretty sure the Bristol Harbour Railway has all these things, and with a 100% safety record.

So the Harbour Railway should become an inspiration for new and rebuilt lines around the country. Steam is fine, street running's fine, unfenced harbourside is fine and so are large groups of ambling people along the track!
