Open Days

All locos are track powered except for 2 playmobil trains which visitors can use on the branch line, however sometimes we allow sensible operators to run them on the main line between the track powered trains which needs extra concentration and team work  from all operators. 

 On the 5″ ride on railway I have increased the width of the high level section in the front garden so that passengers and drivers don’t feel  exposed.   My “Hercules”  (Ride on Railways) loco as the name suggest has lots of pulling power and can pull four adults around the gradients and tight curves of my track, on visits to more level and straighter tracks the load and speed can be doubled.

New Arrival

Another attraction arrived this weekend all the way from Southport, thanks Karl for delivering as it would never have fitted in my car.

It’s very heavy and quite old but runs well  (It’s the train I’m referring to not Kathryn)

New Coaches

More rolling stock arrived today in the form of four Aristo streamline coaches, despite their weight the Pacific hauls them up the garage gradient with no problems, just glad that I have a 10 amp supply to take the extra load.

Progress Feb 2010

The construction of the raised 5″ gauge railway across the front lawn is slow due to the continued cold conditions, however I have built a new point, a signal for Ty-Gwyn station and a removable section of track which will bridge the gap over the drive near the front gate. Not much running on the 45mm but have fitted a new Aristocraft 10amp controller to the inner track and a couple of rail clamps as an easy way to solve a continuity problem.
