Hi.  We took our first round trip on the Welsh Highland railway today.  What a perfect day for it too. Warm sunshine all day, that is a rare sight in these parts.


We had seats in the Pullman car, that made it a nice birthday treat for me.


The total trip was five and half hours of bliss.

Round a very sharpe curve.

Working hard on the incline.



A fond farewell to a beautiful loco.

The WHR should be in every enthusiast's bucket list (a list of things to have done before you kick the bucket). While I know we have at least one member who regrets the loss of serenity and history of the old WHR, and he does have a point, what we have now is simply splendid. Not cheap, but the quality is substantial, and the track is as good as any NG railway I've ridden in the UK. And, yes, the Pullman observation does add a certain something, albeit to the bill, too.


Do it if you can.

Well 14mm is accurate though most use 16.5mm. Backwoods do the NGG16 and K1 in 7mm scale though not sure of the kit availability. The NGG16 was produced RTR in limited numbers but very rare.

Edm models did a batch of the ex SAR wagons and can probably help in many other ideas as Paul is on here as Ricketrescue.


Oh and slimrails do a white metal body kit for Russell.
