Railway Co. - Rob Guinness
Taken during the installation of a passing loop at
Mamod attempting to traverse the layout, approaches
Cluttermere with a pair of Robinson Radial truck bug-box
brakes (in primer). Major changes have taken place
here. Behind the train, the tree has gone, and the
old Cluttermere Light Rly now joins the main line at this
point. In front of the train is now the foundation
for a loco shed.
Scratch building. Diesel double-header with two
Ferero lids on wheels & a plasticard brake van. Again
this area has changed. The main line has been
realigned, and the mound behind the train now has a very
tight loop of the former Cluttermere Light Rly round the
stump which remains of the tree.
Looking back behind the train, the track is a little
Since then the line has been diverted into the bank on
the right, and a rockery now sits on the old trackbed.
Stainz with a pair of card-on-perspex coaches stands in
Cluttermer station (Site). Another area which has now
changed - the tree has gone and platforms have been layed
alongside the two tracks. In the foreground, sidings have
been laid leading to the loco depot mentioned above.
Regauged LGH Stainz with a train of card bug-boxes (now
painted) enters the site of Muddledale station. A siding
now leads off the nearest track here, and round the
corner to the loco shed and sidings.
A more recent shot of Cluttermere station. Summer
2000. Captain Black guides "Otto" into the
loop's new platform with a train of Playmobil
stock. Passengers are mostly "Power
Girls". In the siding in front of the new loco
shed foundation, is a Ferero truck, on Cambrian
wheels. The water tower is jigstones, while the
tank is another Ferero box.
Winter service. BTB railcars waiting at Baybridge,
in the days when it was just a single track halt.
The unpopular and unreliable railcars have been stored
for some time, but there are plans for refurbishment.
A plan of the line. Out of date, but in course of
updating. The top right hand area is the scene of most
