The Middy's new season at Brockford, near Stowmarket, got under way with its Easter Steam Up event on both Easter Sunday and Monday.

At the event visitors were able to enjoy steam train rides in genuine Victorian four-wheeled coaches, with the railway running two locomotives throughout the weekend.

Easter Bunny hunts and prizes for younger visitors also added to the family entertainment with all the railway and museum facilities, including the shop, cafe, and real ale bar coach open for business.

Visitors could also see the progress on the reconstruction of the Middy's own locomotive, Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0T no. 1604, which is now rapidly taking shape after many years of restoration.
