Wellington now has a new board.
We have added a new fiddle yard at the street end which has been quite interesting project.
First having to make a angle board for the fiddle yard to join 2, but also which type of fiddle yard to use.
This is the view from the pub.
This photo shows wellington after the end backscene has been removed.
The new angle board fitted.
I will try a post some more photos this week.
Fingers crossed we will be able to get the track sorted and it all wired and tested.
Friday night was another busy night. Lost of variation of stock.
GER B12, N Class, Class 47, Duchess, Cola Tank, G&SWR Baltic Tank, Dean Goods, Terrier and others which some I forgot to take a photo off. Photos Below.
Members notice there will be no Friday Night Running this Bank Holiday Friday 14th.
Today the Test Track was in use at Glosgog’s Leonard Stanley Event.
Always nice to meet lots of people and have a good chat.
Another brilliant day with a huge selection of locomotive’s and stock(see photos below).
Here are some photos from Our Friday Night Running on Friday 31st.
We had a Mogul, Z, A2, Railbus, Britannia and others.
Just to say the Test Track shall be attending the Glosgog Event this Sunday 2nd at Leonard Stanley.

As some people that follow Rmweb may know, Mike Bragg’s Wellington Street was offered for sale about 8 weeks ago. Since then it has attended a couple of shows with Mike, until his last show at Hardwicke, where the layout was passed on to its new owner.
As you can probably guess we have purchased the layout from Mike!
For the time being the layout will stay the same, but a small fiddle yard will be added to make a more interesting running configuration. Also we have the idea to move the layout up to a more suitable height as it was built to run sitting down, and we intend to convert it to DCC so sound can be used.
As with the agreement with Mike to keep promises he made, we will be attending the Newport O Gauge show on April 22nd and Hucclecote Show on June 23rd. Both show leaflets are below for your information.
For progress follow Wellington’s blog or the Projects page.
Thanks has to go to Glosgog for putting on another great Hardwicke Show.
It’s always a pleasure to take Layouts and have a great day and talking to new people.
Below are some photos from the show. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so the photos were taken with my phone.
