Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Andy Cundick 12mm gauge 4mm scale

The town of Castlederg is the settlement at the terminus of the Castlederg and Victoria Bridge Tramway. The railway was built in 1884 as a three foot roadside tramway to connect the town with the Great Northern station seven miles away at Victoria Bridge. It closed in 1933 following a railway strike.

All locomotives with one exception are scratch built, the rolling stock which you see has been built in its entirety from Worsley Works kits.

The layout is 12 feet long and two feet wide and is self supporting, a crate of Guinness has been known to assist with the Irish ambiance on the model railway.

Any questions or observations on Irish railways and modelling is gratefully received.
