The Great Western Railway branch line terminus has long been a popular theme for many railway modellers, but few have chosen to depict the pre-Grouping era. In our August issue Dave Stone describes the construction of his exquisite 7mm scale rendition, which bristles with Edwardian splendour.

Most of the folk working on the W&LLR are volunteers; have you ever wondered if any of them have really exiting 'day' jobs ? The photo taken at Sylfaen during a photo charter features Dan Abbott hanging out of the fireman's side of the cab. You may have seen something on the BBC news about giant jellyfish in the English Channel near Falmouth. The underwater cameraman was our Dan.

85 years ago today, on 9 July 1934, the Great Western Railway introduced its diesel railcar service on the 117 mile route between Birmingham and Cardiff, timed to attract business passengers and guaranteeing a seat for everyone who had booked. A supplement of 2s 6d (12.5p) on top of the third class fare was charged. The fastest journey using took 142 minutes. The single unit railcars numbered 2, 3 and 4 each had 44 seats and a buffet with four more seats. This photo shows one of the railcars at Cardiff. No 4 is now preserved in the National Collection. ... See MoreSee Less

Day One of the main festivities occurring down in the Garden to celebrate 70 year of Compton Down and the joy, steaming and most importantly - the friendships that this wonderful 16mm institution has spawned, be it directly or indirectly.

Mixed weather was had but it stayed mostly dry and lots of lovely engines and stock ran on the top main and bottom branch lines, ranging from regularly seen friends, to new purchases made on the day [or day before as one chap bought a new engine enroute to Tywyn!] Our usual array of friendly traders were on site to sell when anyone suddenly received a burst of inspiration.

At one point we had a young man doing a "live kit build" going from purchase to running of said kit in under two hours flat! A small number of small-scale dioramas made their way down including an Awdry-inspired shed scene, exhibiting the deep connection between the Talyllyn and the Railway Series.

An excellent first day with regulars returning and new friends made all coming together to celebrate this special occasion in true steaming fashion.
