4th November - updates to the website coming soon, its been a hectic year !!!!



So, Summer is upon us and it's been a good while since we made a worthwhile update on the website, this has mainly

been due to a loss of internet services at the current Elmtree Line residence, but that has now been restored and we will

be making some updates to the site over the next couple of weeks, listed here of course so you can keep abreast of all the

latest news!   

We can now announce that we have a new Steam Locomotive due to arrive with the railway at the end of July,

more details will follow shortly, but it's always exciting to have a new locomotive on the way.




We will be making a major update to the website during JUNE when we have restored full internet connectivity.



"Clydesdale" Page added.

"Maureen" Page completed.

"Anna" Page updated.

Same name locomotives grouped together on left hand page bar.



"Anna" has returned from the paintshop.  Pictures to follow.

So here we are, 2017 has arrived and we have an exciting year ahead planned !!


We have already started to update the website, you will hopefully notice a few "tweaks" that amongst other

things have seen "Molly" as our homepage header.  We will be adding more details to the recent additions to

the steam fleet shortly (pages at the bottom of the homepage) along with updating a number of other pages

to show more recent pictures.  Some of the less useful pages are being removed for a while.


If you notice anything doesn't work or look quite right please let me know, I have tested pages in Windows 10

and on Android but I'm only human!


Last but not least "JAMES" returns for 2017 and here he is...............................

Rhubard and Linda are due to arrive back at the railway by the end of January.


2015 will see us build our new railway, we are very excited about this!


Over the next couple of weeks we will be confirming our 2015/16 steam fleet, with this in mind the "Steam Fleet" page has been blanked out.  It is expected that at least two locomotives will be sold.






A few pieces of news... Beddgelert is now officially named "Rhubarb" and is currently away being lined in a similar scheme to that applied to Princess Mary.   Linda is also away currently receiving lining, it is expected that the two locomotives being lined will be returned to the railway in early January.


Another steam locomotive has joined the fleet, named only as "Loco X" for now as a paint scheme and name are yet to be decided upon.  More details to follow in the new year.  The loco is another Accucraft Lawley, similar in appearance to "Thirty Three" and the colourful "Custard".  


The 'coming soon' loco has now arrived from the overseas factory and is currently in Wales receiving the fitting of Radio Control.  It is expected that the locomotive will return to the railway in mid January.  This loco has not yet been named.


"project Billy" is now nearing completion.  What once was a green steam loco is now a black and white loco.
