Arigna Town off on its travels again, back up the M6, but keeping going to Manchester. Third oldest model railway club in the world, allegedly and very much the Christmas Show, being close to the city centre and and a cough & a spit from Piccadilly station. Christmas Markets too. What more could you want? Apart from the setting of Cultra maybe? First time the layout has been to the North West, so do come and say hello.

Arigna Town graced by model railway royalty today, when Richard Chown of Castle Rackrent fame came to chat. Brought his small tank with him, in full early SLNCR lined green. Commandeered to run the passenger train and ran beautifully for three hours.

Richard's model the initial inspiration for my Irish efforts. A lovely man, it was a pleasure and privilege to meet him.
