Before and after, a Class 122 approaches Llangunllo for Presteign, Titley Junction, Kington and Leominster on a hazy summer afternoon.

The scene six months later on a dismal Welsh morning, passenger services have now been withdrawn and the end of another country byway is fast approaching.

How lovely to see photos of this layout on this thread, Geoff.

I have had a rummage in my old files to see if I could find anything suitable to post that is both interesting and looks realistic.

Thank you Tim, alas the layout is no more, as I'm now continuing with the same theme in 7mm scale.

7719 takes a break from shunting at Bleddfa Road.......

 

So nice to see Bleakhouse Road again, one of my all time favourite layouts.

Thanks for the kind comment about Bleakhouse Road, Geoff. The layout is still extant, simply in storage in Kernow Towers, whilst the focus is on other projects.

 

I was aware that the 4mm Llangunllo had been dismantled and I enjoyed your recent article on Bleddfa Road in MRJ, it all looks superb.

The silence at Seven Mills is broken by the Class 25, 25054 passing over Yard Lane Crossing on its way from Seven Up Junction. Railfreight 56047 is parked in the Yard.

Out for my walk and just caught a Duff, No 47199 passing through Seven Mills from Seven Up Junction with some VAA's and OAA's in tow.

It seems that it is not only over here that people take chances on level crossings. We see here a pick up truck takes a chance and drives over the crossing at Colonel’s crossing during a switching move.

Bill and Ben discus what to do with the old Sleepers, the hot money is on just leaving them there.

33046 Merlin sits quietly behind, and is not getting involved.
