Watch the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway in action

Former Winnipeg Free Press reporter Manfred Jager sent us this video of the end of season parade of Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, which is a 15" gauge light railway in Kent, England, operating steam and internal combustion locomotives. The size is very unique, as it's 1/3 scale, which is larger than the Assiniboine Valley Railway, but smaller than prototype.

The railway has been in operation for 90 years, and  has 13 1/2 miles of track and four stations. They also have a model railway exhibition, a 1940's museum and a kid's play park. You can view the video at
