The Bambrough & Mallenbourne Junction Garden Railway

Postby Metadyneman » Fri Jun 01, 2007 9:41 am

WEll as i have been on this forum for a little while now, I thought I would let you all see how my garden railway has evolved since construction. Unfortunately all the pictures I had of the construction were lost when my old PC went kaput in 2003 but I have managed to rescue some of the early pictures just after ompletion.. to see the pictorial history click on this link.

Hi Ron

I dunno if you might have seen them or not but i've quite a few videos of it on youTube Here's the link to one of them which should point you in the direction of the others i have put on. The station area has been extended since i did the pics for the website and this can be seen on some of the later videos.

here's the link

Hi Jules

Great stuff mate. I enjoyed watching them again on my mid-morning coffee break :) .Thanks for putting 'em on here. I just knew the others would enjoy them. Like the new 'un too with the twenty load. Lovely shots of the steam freight too!

Cheers mate

I'll let you into a secret... shortly after the freight train passed the station the whole lot derailed.. wagons everywhere. If you look really closely, the culprit for the derailment was one of the bake vans which had one wheel off the track when it passed the camera! :D :D :D

Yes It's an ongoing thing really with a garden layout... usually something needs replacing (like the station roof about 20 times :) ). The station gets a makeover once in a while as things get broken off or damaged by moggies etc.

No trains for me this weekend though I'm off up to London for the weekend to share a pint or ten with some mates.
