Amalgamated Wagon Ressurected

Many moons ago – when Moby Dick was still a tadpole in actual fact – some club members who professed to model in a scale they could see, built Amalgamated Wagon. This was a small 7mm shunting plank based on a fictitious wagon works and saw a few shows in the North West. Then interest waned after we lost our club rooms, and for a good few years the layout languished in a barn in Sowerby.

Earlier this year club member Ben Lord rescued it and took it home with a view to making it exhibitable again. He’s making a few alterations, and has already titivated the layout and is thinking of extending it to some exchange sidings. Whilst it’s probably going to offend some of a religious disposition to call this the second coming, we do think it is. But we do know that he’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy………………
