GREAT NEWS - the Green Light n
We have just received permission from Wiltshire College Lackham to continue the circuit around the Wildflower Meadow. All I need now is another 100yds of track, another set of points and a turntable!
One thing I like is memorabilia and preferably memorabilia that has a function. As a result I bought the old water boiler from Market Rasen buffet, hoping I could re-commission it on the LM&WR. This is not turning out as easy as I thought!
Have a look at the following page and see if you could help me.
