JANUARY 2009 ARRIVAL OF LIVE STEAM

A small piece of history is attached to the introduction of live steam to my railway,  I have purchased the last ever Samson locomotive produced by Cheddar Models Ltd.
Samson comes complete with Radio Control, bastorial valve gear, fully sprung driving wheels, bronzed axle bearings and insulated wheels so that track powered trains can be run at the same time.
Samson seems to be a well engineered locomotive and I will  be putting it to the test as soon as I have  purchased a box of matches and a canister of gas.

    Geoff,
    What an amazing website…was just brousing over the Llyn Brenig Sailing magazine and to my pleasure, saw a few trains!!!
    My house mate Ed has heard may stories about your website, and garden (all good, i think!)…and wants to come over and have a look.
    And if there is a new train, then im keen too.
    Hope its possible? A thursday evening would be really good, after school – 5ish.
