In addition to the now updated web pages the IOW can also be followed on Facebook. It is so much easier to add news and pics that most of them go straight to Facebook. See the link on the 'Arrival page' or go to https://www.facebook.com/TheIsleOfWestlandRailway

I really liked your video,you did a great job of keeping the engine at just the right distance away so I could see the background and the trackwork. Your description of the line folding back over itself,was spot on. Read the description first then saw video hard to believe so much in a small space,if I hadn't read first I would have said it"s got to be bigger in size.Such a great railway.

I saw the article in the Hornby magazine concerning your railway and have just watched the films, it all looks excellent. Due you have any open days for "passengers" ?

I thought you may like to knoww that my indoor line is coming on well! I recently added a new siding by crossing the main line inside the cicle, using a home made crossover, and a peco small radius point, very useful in a confined space.Not as difficult as I had first thought..

Interesting and very intensive use of landscaping materials. How does one keep up with weeds as I find myself constantly pulling and cutting through the summer months. Very Well done!

I said, when we talked about the railway in the hotel dining room in Calella in Spain, that I would take a look when I got home. I just have and I'm most impressed - and not a little jealous! It was a pleasure meeting you on holiday and we wish you all the best for the move, if it happens, and the subsequent new layout. (I wish I had been your next website visitor - I was only the 999,999th!)

Nice line Andrew, obviously spent considerable effort in its landscaping, always a difficult subject in garden railways, so many are just stuck onto boards that look very artificial.

Have to get you to post another video soon, maybe a track plan.

Thank you enjoyed my visit.

I was talking to Chris about your garden railway the other day and he showed me your site. It's a very impressive railway you have here! A great inspiration for me and my dream of a garden railway. I haven't got far, but here's my website: www.thefoxdalerailway.co.uk


Thanks Bill. The prototype you heve named your line after is much admired. I am sure that as your line grows it will give much pleasure.
I have just been out carrying out some pruning to the lineside trees and must post some recent pics when I get time. Have fun.....................
