One for steam train lovers. Just outside Thirlmere Lakes National Park is an old railway line that no longer operates passenger or goods services. In the steam train era water for the engines was pumped up from one of the Thirlmere Lakes. A photo of the pump house is in the workshop.
These days the steam train museum at Thirlmere runs rides along the railway as far as the next town of Buxton.
For those who like the details of old engines:
Locomotive 3265 is a preserved New South Wales steam locomotive. It is a two-cylinder, simple, non-condensing, coal-fired, superheated, ‘Ten-wheel’ 4-6-0 express passenger steam locomotive. It is one of the four P class (later C32 class) locomotives that have been preserved.
3265 was built by Beyer, Peacock & Co in Manchester, England in 1902. 3265 is the only surviving member of its class with an original low frame.
It was used for express passenger trains.
