Did you see us on the telly with Michael Portillo?

The Mid Suffolk Light Railway and Leiston’s Long Shop Museum both featured at some length on the edition of  Great Railway Journeys, first broadcast on 13th January BBC2.

Filmed last May, Michael Portillo clearly enjoyed himself riding on the footplate and meeting volunteers at the Middy. He also spent time finding out all about Richard Garrett and his industrial legacy at the Long Shop.
