Hi all.

I was wondering how many modellers out there have their own private railway based on the operations of real life systems. The one that I have is called the Glamorgan Railway Company (est. 1843) set up as opposition to various pre-group South Wales systems such as the Barry and Taff Vale.

It gives me the opportunity to run unusual or out of era trains and to make use of some of my old 1960's made rolling stock, appropriately repainted in my own paint schemes. I'm currently rebuilding a Bachmann "Emily" as a 2-2-2 with a domed boiler to become GR no. 5 "Castell Coch". Loco to be repainted LNER garter blue with indian red wheels and black & white lining.

I find this gives me a bit of a whimsical break from prototype modelling.
