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
