A Week on Tour – Part 2; Strange Happenings at Warley

The other section of my travels last week was with Portchullin to Warley.

It mostly behaved itself; although I did seem to cook a servo board on Sunday lunchtime; which did annoy me lots as until this time we had all of the signals working which was a first.

We ran diesels all weekend, although we could not resist getting the Small Bens out to stretch their legs.  So two examples of chequebook modelling……….  Ben Alligan at the front and my father’s Ben Clebrig at the back

And to complete the Highland outing, Paul Bannerman’s (hard sweat not chequebook) model of a Yankee tank was out too.

  1. Firstly, thanks for the blog follow. Appreciated. I’m not very prolific though. Secondly saw Porthchullin at the NEC, most enjoyable – one of the best layouts there I thought.

  2. Since PorchullIn was featured in the MRJ I am a fan and one day on a trip to the northern hemisphere hope to see it at an exhibition.It captures an era and location not often modelled,so congratulations on a great layout.Best regards Peter

  3. Thanks guys for your comments.
