Gone Visitin’

Last month, stock from Moel Rhos (the Millie and half a dozen small wagons) paid its first visit to another private railway. The Brockhampton & Umbridge Railway is a superbly detailed railway in a beautiful setting, populated by some incredibly fine modelled stock. Here’s a video of my train running round the line:

After she ran out of gas, the Millie was rescued by another visiting loco – a rather beautifully lined Accucraft Caradoc.

I had a go driving the Caradoc – my first time driving a steam loco by radio control. I found the fact that you can control the speed with the reverser somewhat confusing – and my inexperience was evident – but it was a satisfying run.

Then I refuelled my Millie for another run.

A grand day out on a really lovely line!
