Re: Extra Traffic for your Railway. Food for Thought

There was a regular traffic in outsize loads, transformers from Stafford north towards Sandbach. It had to transfer to road when the WCML was electrified (too much to take down once the masts were up.

Re: What was your first model train?

Early 50s Triang Princess Elizabeth and two coaches ,battery powered control box, No base board so it had to be put together on the rug every time. Followed by a 0-6-0 tank engine and wagons as pocket money allowed. Happy times!
