The mention of sailing in Dragons reminds me of sailing from within the Broad at Oldton, plus sailing through the lock and into the upper harbour. Dragons used to be, and still may be, sailed from here, but we were sailing and racing a Fireball.

The railway used to go right through to the docks at the top of the harbour - as well as running down the roads but has probably long since disappeared. Does the photograph on the web site refer to the West or East station?
