Manx Electric Railway

Today being Easter Sunday meant that there was a special event on the Manx Electric Railway; the special event being the use of No. 33 (open tram) hauling a Manx postal van from Douglas to Laxey. You will note that this photo shows the changes to Laxey station after the winter rebuild. In the background shows No. 7.

So today I went to the Folkestone Model Railway exhibition 2012, interestingly held in Folkestone. This was the first model OO and n-gauge rail show I’ve been to in years (I’m not including the 16mm.org show in March). Really fabulous show and well worth going to. It is still on tomorrow (7 Oct) so if you get a chance and are in the area I can recommend going. Loads of layouts and loads of trade stand – spent lots, which is all part of the fun.
