Although I'm a great steam fan and make frequent visits
to preserved railways the greatest thing for me about the
RHDR is that's it's not a preserved railway at all - it's
a railway that just kept going down the years (sometimes only
just), more or less as it was when built. This is not
a place where displaced steam leviathons trundle meekly up
and down at limited speeds with a few odd coaches in tow;
this is the mainline, albeit shrunk to 15" guage, where
the locos work flat out to earn their keep.
The RHDR have their
own web site with all the history, timetables etc and
there would be no point in reproducing it's contents here.
So here are a few facts, my personal opinions and
recommendations and some photographs I've taken down
the years. Take your pick!
