Rede Valley Locomotives

<p>The Rede Valley locomotives form a diverse collection, not quite representing one place or time. One of the concepts behind the Rede Valley is that it should be able to represent more than one period.

A New Year resolution – back to layout building and blogging

The last blog post was in February 2015 and the last one to do with any progress on the layout is over a year old. 2014 was really a year of no modelling whatsoever. Stevenson Road is still sitting with electrics and track complete but very little else, and the Rede Valley line didn’t run […] The post A New Year resolution – back to layout building and blogging appeared first on Rede Valley Railway.

It really needs a name by which it can become known and a location with some historical story it can become part of. […] The post Stephenson Road is born appeared first on Rede Valley Railway.
