Never heard of this before. Is this site open it to the public?
Jack Johnson
are the railway channel going to visit the newly opened Epping and Ongar Railway?

And after all that, there was absolutely no information given on when the first tracks were laid, or whose tracks they are, or the development of the line, or what it might be used for.\n\nDid they purchase and take over nearby tracks after they were abandoned? Did they lay their own? If so, how long did it take and who actually did the work? What tracks were laid first, and when did they start actually running trains on it? Is it purely for private entertainment, or do they now run a regular passenger service for tourists and sightseers?\n\nWhere did they get the engines from which they use on the line? Which came first? What condition was it in? Who does restoration and repairs?\n\nSo many unanswered questions.

I'm a Middy man so it's nice to see two more of the MSLR's stations preserved. =)

Metric is meters and Celsius. Imperial units are Fahrenheit and miles. You should switch to metric it's much simpler.

I know of a private railway thats been laid over the last 30+ years.

In reply to KiwiPower NZ, as a truck driver we've been using metric for decades. All our speedometers are both metric and imperial. All our weights are metric, i.e. gross vehicle weights. Refrigerated temperatures are Celcius but 37degrees means nothing to me, I want hot temperatures in Fahrenheit! All our groceries are in grammes but I dont want to buy a half litre of bitter, I want a pint. Also we buy our fuel in litres. We're gradually getting used to it, thanks to our Eurocrat (Eurocrap) masters.Regards Pete

I would hope they would extend the trackage farther.  Then he could have a more operational historical railway.

Nice vid cheers.Also who give a .... about metric?
patrick lavers
where did he get the money to buy all that stuff
paul kidger
No. Industrially and scientifically we use the SI system. This is generally similar to the metric system but is slightly different in a number of ways. There are a number of Imperial units, such as the pint and mile, which continue to be allowed because they are part of our heritage

Fantastic video John; great to see Mangapps farm thriving after it taught me WHY railways are so much better then road:\nI was helping to lay track and we had one of the 18 ton flat-wagons with sleepers on. Having laid a couple of sections, the boys asked me to push the wagon down a bit for the next section. I thought they were joking, but I was able to single handedly push this wagon along level track; Couldn't do that with a bus! A great demonstration in the efficiency of metal on metal!
