Interesting connection! I think the dates would not work out that we'll. But who knows?
I continue to find tramways and railways in the Forest of Dean of great interest. For this next post we return to Mr Brain's Tramway which primarily served Trafalgar Colliery in the Forest.
Further research has resulted in a bit more information about the locomotives that worked on the Tramway. ....
The Purton Viaduct and the Purton Steam Carriage Road. ....
On the road between Purton and Etloe on the Northwest side of the Severn Estuary there is a railway viaduct. Seemingly it sits remote from any former railway. Although you might just be forgiven for thinking that it is a remnant of the Forest of Dean Central Railway which ran through Blakeney, or even associated with the Severn & Wye Railway which ran close to, but to the South of, the hamlet of Purton.
