Surrey Border and Camberley Railway

8th June 2013 - Eastleigh Lakeside - Surrey Border & Camberley Railway and the Locomotives of HCS Bullock Day - 2005 Silver Jubilee

Today’s entry in the Steam Diary is a celebration of a lost miniature railway held this weekend at Eastleigh’s Lakeside Steam Railway.

The weekend was a celebration of the Surrey Border & Camberley Railway and the Locomotives of H.C.S.Bullock.  The Surrey Border & Camberley Railway ran from Farnborough Green and Camberley for just two years 1938-39.

02 - 8th June 2013 - Eastleigh Lakeside - Surrey Border & Camberley Railway and the Locomotives of HCS Bullock Day (24)Eastleigh Parkway became Farnborough Green and Monks Brook Halt became Camberley to set the scene over the two days.  Locomotives running were five of HCS Bullock’s famous locomotives, two of them originally from the Surrey Border & Camberley Railway.  This included visiting 3007 Firefly (below) from Kerr’s Miniature Railway in Arbroath, Scotland.
