Narrow Gauge North


Tan yr Allt

A 009 layout by Stan Williams & Roger Christian
Scale 009 (4mm/1ft)
Gauge 9mm
Size 11’ x 2’

'Tan-yr-Allt' is based on Tan-y-Bwlch station on the famous Ffestiniog Railway in North Wales. The real station is set on a hillside along which the line meanders. Much modellers licence had to be used to reduce the length of the station into a model that is manageable. The buildings are representative but the station house is a close model of how it looked before extension. Most of the buildings are constructed in plastic using Ratio and Wills material packs. Track work is mostly PECO 009 with some 'N' gauge. Rock faces are either broken Cork bark or plaster castings and the stone embankment sides came from a suspended ceiling tile. A fair Cross section of Ffestiniog Railway locomotives and rolling stock are run on the layout. We also run stock from other Welsh narrow gauge railways and occasionally from further afield depending on which operators are present with their own personal interests.

The operators are members of the 009 Society which caters for small scale narrow gauge modellers. We will be happy to answer any questions regarding the society, the layout, scenics and 009 modelling.
