Abbey Museum, Leicester - 23 June 2013

Today was a special event day at the Abbey Pumping Station Museum in Leicester so its narrow gauge railway was in operation. The conditions were on the cool and damp side.

There is a small collection of well-presented internal-combustion locomotives, but the locomotive hauling passenger trains was 1919 Bagnall 0-4-0ST LEONARD, which I last saw as a static museum exhibit.
