The following model is in the design stage, it is our intention to print & sell these kits in the future. However, we never quite know how any model will look until finished, so we reserve the right to change our plans and to withhold a release until we are happy with the finished article.
TALYLLYN RAILWAY – DOUGLAS 32mm gauge
Douglas spent most of its working life at RAF Calshot near Southampton and was later bought by an engineering company called Abelson’s. In the early days of preservation, the Talyllyn Railway had contacted this and other similar firms, asking for redundant equipment. Abelson’s offered the locomotive to the Talyllyn, and in return, they named it after the donor, Douglas Abelson. After the presentation in 1953, the locomotive was retubed and converted from the 2ft gauge at Griffin Foundry, Oldbury before being taken by road to Towyn.
