1987-1996

Do you have any pictures of the LRT operating in this time that you would like to share with us?  Can you share any memories of it with us?  Please contact us, all publishable entries considered!

Ned and Ted Another LU Depot open day, one newer train decorated as "Ned" from a one-off story (and the model became "Ted" for some time afterwards - one of the characters from the story)!

20,000th Passenger
YDMRS In this view, the LRT's track is seen in use by the Yateley & District Miniature Railway Society; but before the LRT itself had been completed. Nearest the camera is a "Shay" with riding truck; next is a Kerr-Stuart 0-4-0 loco, and then the Bagnall 0-4-0 loco. These latter two models gave the track a good pounding, and the Society did agree (eventually) to making a donation to Fred Blois to go towards the maintenance and repair costs.
