On the 04th December the UK was hit by Storm Desmond, this storm caused havoc within the UK, rivers breaking banks and so much more!

So what did Storm Desmond do to Thorpe Light Railway? Well an awful lot, the photos are below

We arrived on site, the river could be seen way above its normal height, it was insane. The engine shed had around an inch of water flowing through so we decided to do a track walk, we located loads of faults, trees down, the track flooded and so much more, lets say it was an eventful experience.

We could hardly stand on our feet, what do you expect though, there is nothing to stop the wind in the dales, the rain then started again, it got heavier and heavier, it was so exciting, although we were all cold!
