Model Rail 2012 Barrow Hill

Berry Wiggins Bitumen Tanks Leave Albion Yard

Today I’m packing the train set and setting up at Model Rail Live at Barrow Hill, Chesterfield. Theres a new train, see above image, based on Ben Ashworth and Ian Pope images of the Berry Wiggins Bitumen trains, I’ve re-lettered a selection of assorted tank wagons to make up one of these almost iconic trains of the Forest of Dean in its later years. The fiddle yard area has been changed, giving more operating potential to this small layout, which can have a surprisingly intensive operation even for one engine in steam! More improvements have been made in the main scenic area, and I’m hoping to be able to provide a further big change to that later in the autumn.

Anyway if you’re there, come and say hello, and thanks for taking the time to read the blog.
