South Anglesey Light Railway

00, London Midland & Scottish Railway 1938


Description    At the start of the twentieth century there were several attempts to build a railway 8˝-mile (13.6km) between Gaerwen and Newborough. The last attempt being the standard gauge South Anglesey Light Railway in 1909.
I have rewritten history with the London North Western Railway (LNWR), stepping forward to assist funding. In 1923 the LNWR and other companies merging to form the London Midland & Scottish Railway. The layout is set in 1938 with the timetable is at its not very high peek. The service is a mix of local passenger trains some ‘semi-fast’ by missing the halts and goods trains that often stop to shunt the sidings. The occasional excursion train is seen. Trains are mostly hauled by Jintys, 3Fs and 4Fs with the occasional bigger engine.
