    Default Where is the steam train?

    Hello

    Nothing to do with geocaching (even when it has a similar topic like the quiz for march :lol: )

    Do anybody knows where the railtrack is from this video and wether it is a special train?:
    (middle of the road - Sacramento)

    I think it is somewhere in SW-England, because of the train which should be a GWR_0-6-0PT.

    As I couldn't even find where the quiz train is currently (though I know a few places it's visited) I'm not the one to answer

    I recognize the engine type from my schooldays - I used to travel to and from school by steam train every day.

    It is indeed a GWR engine, a pannier tanker, so it would originally have worked in the south west of England. I imagine, though, that this was filmed in the early '70s, after the sweeping line closures of the nineteen sixties, so it could have been filmed on a heritage line. If that's the case it could be anywhere.

    You might be more likely to get an answer if you post in a heritage line forum, for example here. I hope that helps!

    Could it be the Severn Valley?

    Google is your friend .

    While not conclusive a comment on here http://newsinsacramento.com/2010/05/...acramento.html says it's the Nene Valley railway, and that the loco is the "Queen of the Scots". Looking at Nene Valley railway on google maps it certainly fits with the trackside water features on the video.
