Camrail



This weekend saw myself and my brother Richard demonstrating once again at Camrail in Bradford-on-Avon.  This year this 2 day show had a theme focusing on the light railways of Colonel Holman F. Stephens.  As well as several layouts following this theme the Colonel Stephens Society were in attendance and if any light railway devotees are out there and were not aware it was going on then they missed something quite special.  My own demo table had 1/3 of my new "Chipping Compton" layout on show.  The buildings are not in there final positions though.                                                    


One of the Colonel Stephen's layouts on show was Rye Town and here we see "Tenterden" approaching the terminus with a goods working.  

The Weston, Clevedon and Portishead Light Railway's terminus in Weston Super Mare was a humble affair and this 4mm scale model is a very fine portrayal indeed.  Here we see one of the ex LBSCR Terrier tanks standing at the platform having just arrived from Portishead.
