Leighton Buzzard: Narrow gauge railway
The railway was originally built in 1919 to carry sand from nearby quarries to the now dismantled Leighton Buzzard to Dunstable standard gauge railway line close to Page's Park. It closed as an industrial line in 1969, but was taken over by volunteers to be run as a heritage railway. The railway has a very informative website here LinkExternal link Viewed looking north eastwards, the railway runs parallel to Vandyke Road here. The buildings of Vandyke Upper School are visible on the right of the road. The School's website is here LinkExternal link
