As is often the case at our events, John Brodie had one of his engines on the line early in the day and his Leader is seen, above.


The locomotive is seen light engine, above, but after a few laps, John brought out one of his "heritage" coaches for the engine to pull, below.

Above, a nice selection of locomotives on shed at the steam up bay - Phil Hindley's "Charles", Brian and Isobel's battery Hunslet and a visiting "Sea Lion".

Above, Phil Vose's Billie waits contentedly at "Aber Road" station.

Above, Mike Barton's "Sir Christopher Wren" was seen with his steam crane wagon and train passing through "Aber Road" station.

Below, Gavin Cooper prepares his Climax locomotive for a run while Ian Blackburn adjusts the regulator on his Millie before letting her loose onto the line!

Above, Ian makes a slight adjustment as his train of CSHHR coaches takes to the road behind his Millie.

When Millie stopped at the station Gavin's Climax took the road, seen above passing Millie at "Aber Road", above.

Above, Brian and Isobel's new "Russel" was in steam for the first time at the event, and ran very nicely.


A visitor to the line, Colin Edwards, ran "Sea Lion" which is built to 7/8th scale but fitted in well in the 16mm surroundings with her train and some "unusual" passengers!! She is seen, below, passing the warehouses.

The last train of the day was hauled by Isobel's George, "Isobel". She is seen, below, bringing a passenger train out of the station curve and onto the main line.
