John 'C.J.' Penny on duty at Common Lane signalbox. An open day at the GLR will require the 'bobby' to make over 1000 lever movements. Note the Stevens lever frame... Midford lives!
'C.J.' at work turning GLR No.6 'Mr.G' on the turntable at Common Lane ready for a wedding special, whilst John Gartell takes a ride...
Two more recent pics of the Gartell Railway, courtesy of John 'not C J' Penny!
The Gartell railway runs for a short distance on the trackbed of the Somerset and Dorset Railway and is well worth a visit. Their website gives details of the line and opening days.
