The Latest News Update:
Tony has been building a Wrightscale Wren 0-4-0 ST. The engine was apparently bought 2nd hand as a part completed kit with a chassis that would not run properly! Tony repaired the chassis and re-set the valve timing before finishing building the body and then painting the engine, as seen, above. We look forward to seeing the engine in action during the coming running season.
The Rhos Helyg Not-So-Light Railway is a 32mm gauge line with continuous running and shunting facilities and is at ground level. It has a minimum track radius of 4 ft. 6 ins. and a generous loading gauge - although not generous enough for 7/8" scale!! There is no track power on this line.
