RHEILFFORDD CEFN GAM

OGauge By Mike Cook

 

Cefn Gam was situated in the hills to the north of Mawddach estuary in Merionethshire.  The quarry was established in the early 19th century and it was too expensive to transport the slate to the river.  If the quarry was established 40 years later, then this layout is what might of been.

The main idea for this layout was to make it as easily manageable and transportable as possible.  The two main boards (4ft x 2ft) fold over themselves to make a box hut, but there have been several other additions added since then including the 3ft waterfall board.

There are seven locomotives at the current time.  These are split between the passenger train locos and those that deal only with slate trains and shunting.  All the locos are named after friends who have assisted, in many ways.
