Keswick Lodge

The last known Gauge 2 track (actually dual Gauge 1 and Gauge 2) was Tony Hobson’s beautiful garden railway at Keswick Lodge, near Norwich, on land sadly now redeveloped. It’s featured in NL & J 203, Autumn 2004, pointed out to me by Michael Wrottesley who ran there. After that, there was literally nowhere to run, but Gauge 2 equipment still turned up at auctions, often very economically, and I started to build a modest collection.

This photograph was taken by Michael Wrottesley. On the back it says: "The late Dave Phillips with a meths fired G2 Atlantic. In steam for 10 Hours!"

This railway had a section of mixed gauge track, reputedly made as a special order by Tenmille.
