the railway which people forgot - to build

Welcome to the Deben Valley Light Railway



 Welcome to the DVLR

Big website update in progress, keep checking back!


So what happened then?  The DVLR website stalled in around 2010 when exams happened. Then more exams happened,followed by more. By the end I had forgotten how to update this website! Just re learned so I am having a big update. A lot has happened recently (well if you call two years ago recent) in that the old DVLR has been dismantled and a new one has appeared, bigger and better! I've made lots of videos on youtube and taken hundreds of pictures and have a running build log up to date on the Forum which I run which can be found here: so that should keep you busy in the mean time. The plan is to update the website as far as the old railway got before it was dismantled, then to create a new section for the new railway. 

I hope you will forgive me for being bad at updating my website and, considering I am reading Chemical Engineering at Cambridge, I might be a little bit too busy for regular updates...

Anyway, I look forward to how the update unfolds...

Happy Steaming
