Evesham Vale Light Railway 15 inch 

The Evesham Vale Light Railway first opened in 2002, and runs through the grounds of a large country park in Worcestershire, originally established by Jim and Helen Shacknell to house their collection of locomotives. Trains run from Twyford Downs Station, which is situated next to the car park, andwhere there is a station building, engine shed/workshops and a station canopy which doubles as a carraige shed. Running through old apple orcahrds and passing attractive scenery enroute, passengers go through a tunnel, before Evesham Vale station which is situated on the balloon loop. Here passengers can alight for picnics. The fleet at Evesham includes 'Dougal' ex Longeat Railway and 'St Egwin' an Exmoor tender locomotive.
