New For Dinas

Our model of Brown, Marshalls number is 16 ready for action this weekend.

This has been build from a Worsley Works, brass scratch-aid kit to show the carriage running in its present condition for use on Bron Hebog.

Our existing model was scratch built in styrene more than 20 years ago and is finished in all over red livery as the carriage was running in 1988.

That's fine for trundling around on Dduallt, as it will be at Dinas, but it was clear we would have to start a vintage fleet renewal for the new layout and 16 is the second to be completed after a 2nd version of van 10.

Over the winter the intention is for it to be joined by the new 11 & 12 which I scratch built over the summer.

I'm particularly pleased with the way the interior of the first class and coupe compartment show up.

The photo is a little dark so I'm really looking forward to seeing it with my own eyes when the Welsh Highland Great & Small show begins on Friday.
