Awdry Weekend

Event Details

A weekend dedicated to one of our early volunteers, and the author of the popular ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ books – the Rev W Awdry.

The Rev volunteered at the TR for many years and wrote books specifically about the Talyllyn – in it’s ‘Skarloey’ guise – see more info here.

We are planning a weekend of ‘Awdry’ fun, including:

  • Our own loco ‘Peter Sam’ pulling passenger trains over the weekend, and being joined by some of his friends too
  • The Rev’s original model railway layout – the Ffarquhar Branch, on display and running with his original models
  • See and hear some of the original artefacts from the books
  • and lots more

More details to follow
