Denver Light Railway Ltd

About Me

My name is Andrew Walton and I have been associated with Steam/Petrol Locomotives for 22 years. Which has grown into my business ‘Denver Light Railway Ltd’.

From an early age, Steam Power has always fascinated me. Like most children, it started with looking and listening to others who had a passion for Steam Locomotives. For myself, this was my father (a tool maker with a local company). His passion was steam locomotives, which led him to build a 5” gauge tank engine called Ruby. He showed me how it all went together with minute engineering and precision workmanship. It felt so good to be able to see it running after hours and hours of work, a true labour of love. This gave me my first insight into the satisfaction that can be gained from precision engineering and was to inspire bigger and better projects over the years to come.

During my teenage years, I worked as a volunteer at the ‘Severn Valley Railway’, working on the full size Locomotives in the motive power dept. As time moves on and priorities change, including marriage and families, it was time to find something closer to home that the family could get involved with.
