We all have our early memories of what got us into modelling and mine revolve around modelling with my Dad’s Hornby Dublo. I also clearly remember a magazine article about a slate quarry in Railway Modeller, some time in March 1980 something. It turned out to be 1985.
Looking at it now, the rust stands out more than I remember but I do like the track plan. It’s a gem of a OO9 layout in about 3’ x 5’. There’s the resin pool with a sunken wheel in it and some delightful little buildings.
Time to buy some Tim Horn baseboards and visit a few Welsh quarries?
