 The Great Cockcrow Railway   brought by Mike Underwood  


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.
