Re: Little Weldon

Hello all I managed to spend some time on Little Weldon over the weekend. Firstly I started casting some tiles for my next Linka build, I am planning on building a couple of 1930's Metroland "Ideal Homes" very similar to the ones that my Grandparents lived in. The Bay Window will be the most difficu...

Things seemed to slow down a little at Binns Road for 1960 after 1959s flood of new items. Only two new locomotives this...

Re: When did you get your first model train?

Hello all I can not remember a time when I didnt have a train of some kind. Ive had a few firsts over the years. The very first was a Playcraft Clockwork 0-4-0 and some wagons HO scale.

Hello all I have been reflecting on how much Little Weldon has evolved over the course of this year. The first major item of scenery was the development and landscaping of the Locomotive Yard. This was completed at the end of January, following on from this was the painting and Cobble laying of the ...
