    • FOR SALE
    • USED - boxed, complete and unmodified

    In my possession for over a decade but very little used. Front vac pipe loose in box; otherwise excellent. Box a little scuffed but generally sound. All paperwork present including limited edition certificate. Postage by Royal Mail Special Delivery.

    • FOR SALE
    • USED - boxed, complete and unmodified

    New and unused. All separate detailing parts, smokebox door, couplings etc. still sealed in packet.


  4. The seller is commendably honest. "I have no clue what the builder was trying to achieve when he built this." You and me both, chief.
  5. Whoever built this atrocity seems to have worked forwards from the tender and, while he was just about paying attention when he started, by the time he got to the business end he was completely away with the fairies. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334210593258?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3De99f853e3956453e854e44e0650d96d4%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D334210593258%26itm%3D334210593258%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507
  6. Just bumping this thread as North Bay Railway Engineering has posted a few photos of the completed 'Blyth' and she's a real bobby dazzler. https://www.facebook.com/North-Bay-Railway-Engineering-Services-222968755125074/photos/pcb.1081911619230779/1081911445897463
  7. By my reckoning the remaining operational Mk.1s consist of three suburbans and seven corridor coaches, which should be enough to maintain the LlR's usual two train service. I dare say the DMUs could also be used as hauled stock in warm weather, much as the NYMR used to do with its Gloucester units.
  8. Two of the Llangollen-based LNER carriages have joined the LNERCA's collection and will be moving to Embsay: http://www.lnerca.org/home/news-and-updates/?fbclid=IwAR365y00_Fuaw3oVfMUc1aNykM4DDcne5fSdb1nh__gTtA7WuaxPSaAbpU0 In addition, the PLC-owned items which are to be auctioned have been listed here: https://www.lsh.co.uk/assetadvisory/online-auctions/llangollen-railway-plc-auction?fbclid=IwAR1_-TCAfLfAxsa_8ZhB86TkGDXjMbdUO8LR9Q4fPmcCiIo7YejFKkqiFEo NB: The 'Mk. 3A' is actually a Mk.1 on 3A bogies, and the 'Class 13' is ex-ICI English Electric Class 11 lookalike 'Davy.'
  9. I note that the Trust has put all three of its steam engines - 7754, Austin No.1, and Jennifer - on the market. https://www.therailwayhub.co.uk/59551/llangollen-railway-plea-to-save-welsh-heritage-line/
  10. Charben's made both in more or less the correct scale, to tie in with the film. You can pick tatty ones up fairly cheaply on ebay in sufficiently good condition to form the basis of a detailing project. https://www.vintagebritishdiecasts.co.uk/3index/cha1-4.htm
  11. Anything of Penrhyn origin is likely to stay put, but I'd expect Vesta and Haydock and Beckton No.1 and Hawarden and Kettering Furnaces No.3 to move elsewhere.
  12. Catch it while you can. The National Trust is currently carrying out a 'review' of the railway museum, which will probably end with all the engines except 'Fire Queen' and 'Charles' moving elsewhere. Always assuming of course that they can get them out.
  13. Found it! Whitehaven, Cleator and Egremont Railway No.6, later Furness Railway No. 102.
  14. I've heard the pre-FfR revival Porthmadog described as 'A graveyard with streetlights.' It's a very well set up town, but without the three railways I doubt whether it would be the tourism hub it has become. I offer you the example of Denbigh, which is much handier for some major English conurbations and is one of the UK's finest mediaeval walled towns, but which has next to no tourist industry. Even on a nice day in midsummer the number of grockles in Denbigh can usually be counted on the fingers of one offensive gesture.
  15. If memory serves it was owned and edited by Pat Hammond, at least initially.
