Childhood layout photo discovered

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Found this old photo of my childhood layout when I was about 12 or 13 many moons ago. I still have some of the rolling stock and buildings. I vividly remember mixing plaster to form terrain over scrunched up newspaper balls. No idea what the CIE shunter was. Most of the LLPs also survived and have walked the platforms of Kingsbridge. This was in the attic of my dads house.

The shunter looks like the old Triang/Hornby 4 wheel Dock Authority shunter, with added white bits to represent CIE livery.

Plenty of Airfix kits there.

Yes Dapol now own the tooling and sell many of the same railway series kits as those famous ones from the 1970s

Is that a Wrenn tank engine on the passenger train?

I had one of those - big solid things. Wish I still had it.

Out of idle curiosity, if anyone else had one of those (4MT, I think the number was 80054), did you find that if you ran it chimney first, the 4-wheel bogie just wouldn’t stay on the track - it kept derailing? I always had to run mine bunker-first.

Also, would it be possible in this day and age to DCC-chip a thing like that?
