Can anyone help me with this. I remember seeing, sometime during the 80s an 0-16.5 welsh narrow gauge layout in Railway Modeller. Can't remember it's name or when it appeared but it was a great model. The best I can do to help is, it was a "terminus" but with the possibility of thru running eventually, at the left hand side, where there was a low relief house back. Then there was a station building and platform. The track then left the scenic area behind the engine shed and looped round to return in front of the sheds or maybe even thru a shed. The locos were based on Talylyn engines.
Sorry but that's all I can remember. If anyone could identify the layout from my vague description and point me in the right direction to find the said article it would be much appreciated.

I've got several boxes of old Railway Modellers downstairs - not wishing to search them all, can you remember a little more to go on ?

Sorry that's about it, other than the station was low relief. It doesn't matter I'll try plan B. Buy up all the Rms from the 80s! I'll find it again. I think it was a "railway of the month". Not to worry. Cheers.

Hi Raveninblack,
I think the layout you are referring to is Gordon Gravett's Llandyref. I haven't got the particular issue of RM to hand, but (faulty) memory tells me it was sometime around 82/83 ish? You'll also find details of the layout in the Modeller book of narrow gauge, published by Peco around 84/85. And notable because that was the first tiem Ted Polet's inestimable work in 009 had been featured.
hope this helps,
Best wishes,
David.
