Reddall Hill

This blog has always been mostly about my layouts and my modelling but, from time to time it's nice to feature someone else's work for a change.

Reddall Hill is the work of one of our younger members at Cradley Heath Model Railway club.
Nyall Rudge is 18yrs old and is showing all the signs of becoming a good railway modeller.

The layout is 00 gauge using Peco track and turnouts and a mixture of kit and scatch built buildings.

Most of Nyall's stock is modified and weathered RTR stuff but when you look closely his locos and stock are weathered to a high standard.

Nyall has taken the layout out to his first exhibition last November and was well received by exhibition visitors.
I am hoping that this blog entry is read by some exhibition managers who would like to take a punt on this layout at one of their shows. With Nyals enthusiasm they will not be dissapointed.

Cheers for now

Oh. P.S.
Contrary to some rumours circulating around  the Black Country, Cradley Heath Model Railway Club is NOT closing down, neither is the club in financial difficulty.
In fact, we intend to expand and get bigger, we have our exhibition taking place this October and are looking for new members, so, If you live nearby call in for a chat and a coffee any club night.

Cheers again
