My first visit to Chatham docks, a brilliant location oozing with atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Three locomotives were in operation for the day:

Peckett Works No. 1903
Robert Stephenson & Hawthorne 'Ajax'
Aveling Porter 'Sydenham'

The railway doesn't allow visitors to ride behind the locomotives however i feel this adds some brilliant atmosphere to see the locomotives hauling a rake of authentic looking wagons without people sitting inside!
Sydenham.The Peckett passes.The Peckett once again.Ajax hauls the train back into the dock complex.Sydenham with a suitable industrial back drop.The Peckett rests at the Wharf at the other end of the line
