The Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Society was founded some fifty years ago with the aim of saving a Bagnall saddle tank locomotive from the scrap yard
and establishing a narrow gauge railway in Hampshire, and which later evolved into an equipment operating group. In October 2006 it was incorporated into
the Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust, an important milestone which has proved a most beneficial development. With its base for operations at
the Brickworks Industrial Museum in Hampshire in the south of England, the Trust conserves and operates narrow gauge equipment dating back
to the end of the nineteenth century.
At Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum, efforts are focused on the once widespread narrow gauge railway in industry. Here the Trust's steam and petrol locomotives and many other varieties of rolling stock are kept, and see regular use both for work on the re-creation of a narrow gauge railway, for demonstrations of industrial trains to visitors and for operating passenger trains.
The Trust's Hunslet steam locomotive ‘Cloister’ has recently been moved from Amberley Working Museum & Heritage Centre , and is currently undergoing a refit in the workshops at Holton Heath Dorset.
