The first in a new series of Special Editions from the popular digital magazine Narrow Gauge Net documents the life and times of both the locomotive Bazalgette (formerly known as Busy Basil), and the Garden Festival Railways of the late 1980s / early 1990s (the loco was originally built for service at the Stoke-on-Trent Festival). This locomotive was returned to service in spring 2019 to work the railway at the Crossness Engines Trust site - the only heritage railway inside the M25.
