RAILWAY GALA WEEKEND
12/13 July 2008

It was LISTERMANIA!!

Nine visiting Lister Railtrucks landed by various means on the Amberley 2-foot tracks thanks to the supreme efforts of Graham Feldwick, from the Twyford Waterworks Trust, who did a great job enticing the owners of nine Lister Railtrucks to bring their machines to the Museum.

That made a total of 11 locomotives - we think the largest number ever at one location in preservation.
