Great Cockcrow Railway brought by Mike
A miniature steam railway located in Chertsey, Surrey, it opened to the public in
1968. However, the origins of the railway go back to 1947 and the private
Greywood Central Railway in Walton-on-Thames . We look at the early days at
Greywood, the transition to the Cockcrow in the mid-1960’s and its subsequent
development up to the present day. We explore the workings of both Permanent
Way and Signals and Telegraph, visit the stable of locomotives and describe the
operation on a typical public day and finish with a train ride round the whole
of the 1¾ mile network.
Club day trip on Saturday 13th - Fawley Hill Railway. A coach trip - contact the Club for pickup points and times. Prior booking required.
