The Crowfoot Light Railway website

A garden railway built and operated by Andy and Sheila McMahon at their home in Beccles, Suffolk.

SCENICS AND THE GARDEN

          We re-built this website autumn 2017 using photos available to us then.  Many of the out of date photos will be replaced when the CLR gets running again in the spring 2018.  From April 2018 onwards each of the three main pages will have a sub-page listing necessary work and pending or recent changes to the railway.  -  Andy
          The gardens at our home are primarily for the joint enjoyment of both myself and my wife Sheila and of course our dog 'Matelot'.  In the initial planning stages a couple of reasonable restrictions were imposed on the design.  These restrictions are set out below:
  1. The railway is not to extend out of the rear garden.
  2. The railway and the garden are to have equal importance and the result of any build shall not have one overriding our enjoyment of the other.
          I am lucky, when compared with some other garden railfarers, in that my wife loves the garden railway and is happy to support me in what is mainly my hobby.
