I too dont want to see the site go - i think it is by far the best forum in this wonderful hobby out there. I emailed Emrys with a couple of questions about what is required both technically and financially - and he then added the details to his post. Based on those tech details i did a quick search...

Steam Lines

In a "free" magazine rummage box at the Cardiff Model Railway Show today, I picked up a copy of "Steam Lines" - issue no2 from sept/oct 1985. Interesting little magazine of 50 pages by Mr Merlin from Welshpool. Just wondered if anyone knew more of what happened to it? "For t...

Hopefully the WR18 will not require much work to get it going, just six 12v heavy duty auto batteries. The other one will require more attenti...

Wonderful ! Messer's Robinson & Emett would certainly smile at her..

I do like that overgrown track! I thought the chap filming was going to cop it a few times - nice curves
