Talyllyn Road

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Talyllyn Road  
Andy Cundick EM gauge 4mm scale

Talyllyn Road is based on an Ian Rice design from his book "Light Railway Layout Design", (Ettrick). The main difference being the move of location to the Welsh borders just east of Brecon from the Scottish borders. Although the number of items of Scottish stock sometimes make me wonder.

It supposes a branch line similar to the Tanat Valley line just moved south and is operated by the Brecon & Merthyr and Cambrian in 1920. I still have not decided what the extension beyond the station serves, it may be a reservoir line or a military branch.

The layout itself was built merely to run my ever expanding standard gauge stock, but seems to be taking on a life of its own.
