  1. It was great to see your layout at Whitehead last Saturday. Thank you very much for bringing it all that way to display it. It was impressive and very high tech.
  2. The GNRI S class is one of Tony Ragg's on his Standfording layout. The engine shed and stables block are both copies of the ones at Whitehead Excursion Station. The Whitehead show was well attended yesterday despite terrible weather. Thank you to all the exhibitors, RPSI volunteers and visitors who helped make it such a fun day.

  5. Whitehead Model Railway Day starts at 10am tomorrow, Sat 9th November 2019, and is on all day until 5pm. Most of the layouts arrived today and only require fine tuning and a bit of track cleaning in the morning. Two fantastic O gauge layouts are on display: Tony Ragg's Stanfording featuring Wonderful Whitehead itself and John and Peter Smith's superb Saltdean- a recreation of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway in the 1880s. This is the first time Saltdean has been shown in Ireland.

  12. Look out for this fantasy layout on Saturday 9th November 2019 at Whitehead Model Railway Day. Dave from Stradbally is bringing an N gauge layout that had been built specially for the event. Dave has produced a layout in an attache case which he describes as having a slightly grim pseudo-Soviet aesthetic. It is populated with robots that he designed himself and had 3D printed in France! This layout also includes a Tractor factory. Unmissable!
  13. A layout to look out for this Saturday 9th November 2019. Dave from Stradbally is bringing an N gauge layout that had been built specially for Whitehead Model Railway Day. Dave thought it would be fun to produce a layout that would fit in a attache case, which the kind they used in spy-movies from the Cold War era. It's a simple oval loop, combined with a slightly grim pseudo-Soviet aesthetic and representing Dave's love of Robots and agricultural machinery.
