Recommended Posts

This year`s layouts are a selection of some diverse, rarely modeled railways:-

Ynysybwl - the Taff Vale in 1922 in EM gauge

Ynysafan - the Rhondda & Swansea Bay in OO gauge

Mutton - a section of the L&SWR superbly modeled in OO

Burrard Inlet - Canadian Railways at Vancouver in HO

TGB Metal Recyclers - the latest in a series of layouts by Paul Rolley, BUT this time in O gauge

Another Z gauge German layout from the local specialist in this gauge, Max Jones

Portskerra - the Highland Railway in EM 

St. Kenvince - Modern image in Cornwall in OO  with must have China Clay traffic

Clayton Road - a small docks diesel depot in O gauge

Washery Halt - the latest master piece from Wayne Hopkins in O gauge - THIS IS ITS FIRST OUTING

Forrest Gate Parkway- Modern Image terminus in OO

Diano Marina - Italian Railways in HO

Brimscombe - a large steam/diesel era layout in N gauge - we had to have one GWR layout

 

All this plus Trade, Demonstrators, Societies and the usual superb food from the school catering staff

This is a bit organised for Cardiff. I presume Mr Porter isn't Tom's new id.

MOST DEFINATELY not, he has to let go of the handles on his flying bike to be able to type messages

Good news for everybody but me. I won't be there. I am due to be cut up on the slab on Wednesday (if the NHS don't cancel) so I will be being tended to by nurse Denise. I am sorry to be missing this as it looks like another excellent show.

Visitors travelling by rail will have the chance to experience TFW/Keolis-Amey services and perhaps spot the only train so far in the new livery. It may be worth confirming that the Welsh lines affected by last week's storm are working normally.

The free shuttle bus runs from Central on Saturday only.

Setting up day today as soon as students have left the building. It's Friday, they won't hang around, I never did.

 

Rail passengers are never free of weekend engineering works these days but the intrepid enthusiast will not be put off. There's a bus replacement between Shrewsbury and Newport. Two of the four lines between Newport and Severn Tunnel Junction are closed changing timetables by a few minutes in each direction. 

 

Nearest M4 junction is J32 Coryton.

 

Good weather is expected.

 

Let's hope that there will be no engineering works on the layouts to disrupt running trains.

Really enjoyed the show today but had to leave earlier than planned due to dodgy knees giving too much pain (too much demolition this week).

Really loved Washery Halt I watched it for ages but all the layouts were to a very high standard. Well worth a visit.
