'Rocks by Rail' was the 'Rutland Railway Museum' The railway is near to the village of Cotteresmore which is not far from Rutland Water. The railway museum is about 4 miles from Oakham on a quite B road to Cottersmore. Without signs to it you could pass it by without knowing it was there. The site is set back from the road
The Rutland Railway Museum had a very large collection of around 40 industrial steam and diesel engines and many wagons based on the ironstone industry that once were all round this part of Rutland. Any one who has never been will be surprised just how many locomotives and wagons they have. There are not many other sites in UK with so many open wagons
Many locomotives and wagons were bought when the steel works at Corby, which is were the iron ore mined here around this site went, were closing down and some other steel works around the UK. The 0-6-0STs and 0-4-0STs diesel engines and wagons were all lined up along the site.
