Pilgrimage to Wexford - Ballybeg, Llangollen, and Cynwyd

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Two intrepid modelling travellers made a pilgrimage to Wexford last week to receive a guided tour of four stunning layouts. We were treated to multiple stock operations on the layouts. A huge thank you to 'Irishrailwayman' for his hospitality and showing two visitors some of his wonderful layouts.

 

Llangollen - N gauge - After seeing this stunning layout and its incredible detail I was won over to N gauge.

Llangollen - N gauge - There is so much detail your eyes almost miss it. For example the kayakers in the river, the insides of buildings, drapes, curtains and roller blinds, the roof detail, weeds, weathering, it is a master class. The road traffic can changed to match the period of railway stock from 1930s right up to the 00s.

Cynwyd - N gauge - West country BR scenes right up my street. Just reeking of the 1950s, and a GWR pannier tank to push me off my perch.

Ballybeg - Stunning scene outside a country pub - the placement and use of figures makes it totally realistic and alive

Ballybeg - Lock scene of a summers day - again this layout is alive with model humans doing real life. Amazing!

Ballybeg - Signal box - wow, one working and one looking on as the kettle boils on the stove

Ballybeg - Beautiful B101 running with stunning DCC sound chip (similar to BR class 24 engine)

Thank you Gerry for your time and hospitality. Your work is totally inspiring.

Hi Kevin. It was a real privilege to see these layouts up close and operating. I understand Llangollen was recently exhibited in Wales. :) Noel

Thanks for posting the pictures of such great layouts Noel, they are a hive of activity even without the trains running :)
