Motive power: Live Steam
This will be the seventh incarnation of our “pop-up” garden railway. It started life as a “can you fill a space” enquiry at the initial Great Central Railway Model Event, and has become a popular exhibit in the Larger Scale marquee at each subsequent event. This will be our first “outside” exhibition, and we are grateful for the invite!
We stick to the original basic principles of building the railway from scratch on each occasion using trestle tables as a base, although we have added two pre-constructed boards to the front to save some time. These boards also house and protect the “ground” apparatus for our 16mm scale working Travelling Post Office set, which has been featured in “16mm Today”. Trains are operated by live steam locos wherever possible.
