Made in 1989 this was my first home-grown venture as ‘Festival Video’. It starts with an interview with Maxitrak’s Andy Probyn giving an overview of the company and its then products – the success and continued expansion of the company now ranks it as probably the major player in the supply of miniature railway equipment. This is followed by a visit to Kent Laverty’s 5″ gauge line at Lyminge, situated very near the trackbed of the long lost Elham Valley Railway, which shows just how much you can get in a small space. David Best’s long closed ‘Greenfields’ 7¼” gauge line was home to the mighty Dolphur, seen her in steam. The ‘Wayside Light Railway’ is very much operated on narrow gauge priciples and is seen during a busy, and rare, public open day. Another now closed line is Peter Howards ‘Stoneleigh House Railway’ where his collection of 10¼” gauge locos are seen in steam. Finally a visit to the ultimate garden railway, the 2ft gauge ‘Bredgar & Wormshill’. Anyone who knows the railway now will be delighted to see how much it has changed in the last 25 years.
