  • Biography
    I returned railway modelling in 2002 by joining the Wexford MRC. I made a collection of Irish rolling stock eventually developed Ballybeg an Irish outline home/exhibition layout in OO. This has been exhibited at 10 exhibitions winning Best Scenic and Best in Show prizes in Wexford. I developed Llangollen in N gauge a UK outline "restored" railway based on the prototype in NE Wales which has been shown 9 times (including at Bala, N Wales) winning a Best Scenic Award in Wexford. Shunters Yard is a OO GWR compact layout and has been shown three times. Cynwyd in N is based on another Llangollen line prototype station. It has been shown twice winning prizes Best N Gauge in Wexford and Best Layout Scenery at SDMRC. My latest layout is Llanuwchllyn in N (another Llangollen line prototype station) is due its exhibition debut at Bala in May 2018.

    Telford Exhibition 2018

    Visited the amazing exhibition at Telford, UK in September 2018 with very high standards of O Gauge modelling in evidence. A huge number of very well stocked traders were there also. I have posted some shots of Arigna Road separately under its topic stream.

    Arigna Town - this week's scenery

    I had the pleasure of seeing Arigna Road in the flesh at the Telford Guildex Exhibition and of saying hello to David. Pictures hardly do the layout justice. This was probably the best exhibition I have ever attended with a very high standard of modelling and traders with huge stocks. A few of my shots:

    Belfast Model Railway Exhibition

    Thanks Noel. Yes, the O gauge is called "Little Siddington" based on the names of many similarly laid out stations on the GWR Bristol-South Wales line.
