Welcome to the website of the
North-West Wales 16mm Model Railway Group
This is a Group that is associated with the
and serves North West Wales and the Isle of Anglesey. The Group was formed in 2009 and presently has around 30 members, the majority of whom are based in the North West Wales area.
Our group exists to encourage those who are actively engaged in, or who have an interest in, the art of modelling items of railway locomotives, rolling stock, track, signalling, and other railway infrastructure, in garden scales and settings.
Our seasonal photograph, above, is courtesy of Phil Hindley and shows "THE ECLIPSE" in the snow at Llechwedd Slate Quarry, Blaenau Ffestiniog, in December 1963. It is believed that this was originally built by W.G. Bagnall as an 0-4-0 ST, No. 1445 "Margaret", in 1895. It was converted to run on electricty at the quarry in 1927, and re-named "The Eclipse". The engine has been preserved and is apparently presently stored at the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway's Museum at Portmadoc awaiting restoration.
Might this be a nice modelling project for the winter for someone?
