Chronicling the development of my 5-gauge 4mm scale model railway with a few off-topic insights thrown in for free

Big railway No. 0

Leave a comment

Being a Ffestiniog man, I am very aware of Bog Railways 1 and 2, built during the deviation to transport mined rock away from the blast face of the new Moelwyn Tunnel being built. 

Today, as part of my job, I got to have a look at Bog Railway 0. Or one of the originals anyway. It’s in Ireland. On a bog (what a surprise). 

  
Hopefully, I may get the chance for another visit and a chance to do some work on the railways soon.

Now in my fourth decade, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
