(Fiction): The Glenister Valley Railway was built on the track bed of a standard gauge line in Lincolnshire. The standard gauge was closed in 1958 and later that same year the Earl of Lincolnshire bought the track bed and reconstructed a 2ft 3" narrow gauge gauge line. Running for 19 miles to the small terminus of Glenister, the line is run using second hand stock from Britain and abroad, much of this stock still running in their original companies liveries until such time as new stock can be purchased.
The layout features the terminus, canal and timber yard as in the mid 1960's, and is 8 ft long x 21" wide using two boards.
At Beccles on March 7th 2015 were displayed the seven entries for the 2 square Foot Challenge. The visitors to the show were invited to vote for their particular favourite layout.
To celebrate our first anniversary we decided to hold an Open Day/Exhibition in Beccles. It was held at the St John Ambulance Hall in Blyburgate and we were honoured to recieve 231 visitors, which exceeded our expectations. Thank you to everybody who came, and those who helped and participated.
Taking photographs at an exhibition is not ideal, but here are some images of the main layouts on display.
