Isabel a 0-4-0 Bagnall, works number 1491 of 1897, paid a visit from the Amerton Railway.  Isabel was supplied new to the Cliffe Hill Granite Company of Markfield, Leicestershire.  Isabel and Pixie worked alternate hourly stints doing trips on Cadeby Light Railway.  Isabel did the first stint when these photos were taken.

Isabel simmering whilst passengers board her train.  Note the special headboard being carried - "1963 Final Fling 2005"

As the first hour from 11 am was quiet passengers got two trips up the line per ride.  Note the "std Gauge" item - a LNWR/MR jct post.

Isabel at the other end of the line, with the sun breaking through the trees to give an idyllic image of days gone by.

Shame about the headboard - otherwise one could dream of days gone by at Markfield, about 10 miles away.
