Madder Valley Railway

The first time I visited Pendon Museum must have been, at the latest, some time during the 1980's and I fell in love with John Ahern’s Madder Valley Railway, particularly Madderport.

Fast forward through thirty-odd years, half of them spent abroad. I've had the idea for Porthkeres rattling around in my head for many years, but I didn't realise how much of an influence that layout had been on me until (having already committed Porthkeres' design to paper in the interim), I paid Pendon a second visit only a couple of years ago.

Take a look at these beautiful photos from Pendon in 2010.
