    Michael Lloyd

    Issue 3 (1985)



    Inspired by Llangynog, the terminus of the erstwhile Tanat Valley Light Railway, Mike Lloyd's 7mm finescale layout represents Cambrian Railway practice around 1908. Mike first became acquainted with the TVLR in 1949 whilst employed as a forest worker near Lake Vyrnwy and, although he never travelled on the line, the beauty of the Tanat Valley and the rather ramshackle corrugated iron buildings at the stations impressed themselves upon his memory. When, in the late 1960s, the search was on for a suitable Cambrian prototype upon which to base an '0' gauge layout, The Tanat Valley branch resurrected itself in Mike's mind and Tafalog was born. In his own words Mike describes the rationale behind this unusually realistic 7mm scale layout, and the methods adopted in its construction.

    Roger Lycett-Smith

    Issue 57 (1992)



    The Cambrian Railway's cheapskate timber bridges and viaducts, similar in style and design to many used by other companies, make a simple and effective 4mm model. Roger Lycett-Smith, who is slowly tracking down all existing examples, tells you how.
