Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

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.

Having now officially reached middle age, 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 to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
