Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust

Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust A small and determined group looking after and providing access to some of the UK's Narrow Gauge Heritage.

The Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Society was founded some forty-five years ago with the aim of establishing a public narrow gauge railway in Hampshire, and later evolved into an equipment operating group. In October 2006 it was incorporated into the Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust, an important milestone which will lead to further developments. With bases for its operations at the Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum in Hampshire in the south of England and the Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre in Sussex, the Trust conserves and operates narrow gauge equipment dating back to the end of the nineteenth century.

Mission: At Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum, efforts are focused on the once widespread narrow gauge railway in industry. Here the Trust's two petrol locomotives and many other varieties of rolling stock are kept, and see regular use both for work on the re-creation of a narrow gauge railway, for demonstrations of industrial trains to visitors and for operating passenger trains.

With Wendy up and running, attention is now centred on Cloister. It has been moved off site to have it's boiler tubes changed and motion gear serviced. Here is a few photos showing the progress. The boiler has been removed to make it easier to do the tubes and gives better access to the motion gear.
