  1. These are excellent! Keep up with the good work! Alex
  2. Minitrains make some relatively low-cost American H0n30 RTR locos: http://www.minitrains.eu/mt-steam.html and also freelance carriages: http://www.minitrains.eu/mt-pass.html
  3. So might this feature as part of the Achingverse Canon? I know a while back you expressed your interest in a Doggerland-esque Island too:

  5. Reminds me of this comment by @Hroth on the Castle Aching thread a while back...

  7. The Swanage Pier Tramway: The mysterious rails of Chippel Bay: This is probably the most on-the-nose one you'll get Nearholmer, it's a tramway that is so close to the sea that it gets submerged! I read a fascinating online booklet published by the Lyme Regis Museum documenting the Cement industry of the town, one section features the strange tramway at Chippel Bay, with the writer Richard Bull noting that it is very unclear as to why the tramway is there at all, although there are theories... http://www.lymeregismuseum.co.uk/lrm/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/6_cem
  8. Gotcha, sorry about that Although I have to admit of the railways on that list I compiled, the Southwold Railway was hardly a serious railway at all. It's operation in any streamlined matter was constrained by the managment's lack of enthusiasm to spend any money. So no wonder Reg Carter satirised it in his postcards.
  9. Some incredibly obvious lines I've chosen to point out as no-one has already: The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways (at Porthmadog) The Southwold Railway The Penrhyn Quarry Railway (at Port Penrhyn)
  10.

  11. I've sent a message to Preston Services regarding if the engine is the Jaywick Single in question. I also see that poor Beckton No.1 is still up for sale. It must have been 5 years since she went up...
  12. According to the Miniature Railway World Forum, in 2008 it was at the Museum of Country Life (now World of Country Life), Exmouth
  13. Speaking of another 18-inch gauge seaside miniature railway... Does anyone know what happened to the Jaywick Stirling Single?
