    Sorry to disappoint but "Wheldale" won't fit. It's standard gauge :p

    I'm not sure I've seen any pictures of the standard gauge engines running on 1ft 10in gauge converter wagons. Must have been a bit precarious.

    Just a few mods to Geoghegan's concept to sort out the slight Centre of Gravity issue and you're ready to rock'n'roll! :Wacky:

    I took a journey up the Conwy Valley Line today and spent some time with the camera around Blaenau Ffestiniog, and whilst waiting on the station (trying to stop getting sunburn - in BF!!!) Vale of Ffestiniog appeared with a real delight in tow. The staff did suggest that it might not be appropriate to publish this yet, but as Glenn Williams has posted photos on Facebook I think it should be ok!

    152 on test:

    It looks a real treat, particularly the interior and the paint finish - congratulations to all those responsible.

    Lyd was on one of the trains today, sounding and looking good.

    Edited to Change "Lew" to "Lyd" - senior moment!
