Scenic Railway: Fire Damage

In April 2008, fire swept through the Scenic Railway, destroying 20% of the structure, the workshops, most of the station and all of the trains. The Save Dreamland Campaign was given exclusive access shortly after the fire. This is the photographic record of the remains of the Scenic prior to the clearance of the fire damaged areas. All photographs by Nick Laister.
