About

Are you wondering what “Fifteen Flatout” is supposed to mean ? Well  the trains on Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway are  permitted to travel at a maximum speed of a mere fifteen mile per hour.

As the tag line suggests this blog is about things that take my fancy. I have no fixed agenda and so if I come across something interesting it may well turn up here. The backstop will be posts  about some of the activities that go on behind the scenes to keep the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway running.

    Geoff,
    Do you know if the railway sells copies of wagon drawings? I am looking for a drawing of the great Western era steel framed timber truck, or the subsequent conversion to an open wagon. In the Glynn Williams book there is a copy of the drawing but it is quite small and thus difficult to get details from.
    Thanks
    Pete

      Pete,

      The W&LLR does not have a publication of wagon drawings. To the best of my knowledge we do not have formal drawings for any of the GWR built rolling stock.

      If you can be patient I will make some enquiries in the New Year.

      One of my sons reckons that the steel framed timber wagons were of similar dimensions to the wooden ones and there is a drawing of that in Williams’ book.

      Geoff
