Inspiration


Thanks to this blog I've become ridiculously interested in the Portmadoc, Beddgelert and South Snowden Railway, in particular the projected line from Beddgelert past Llyn Gwynant and on to Betws y Coed. Though I've yet to do anything concrete it hasn't stopped me from taking a very plesant detour on my way north through Gwynedd to visit a friend to take these photos of the locality.

It's a beautiful valley, and I'm sure the real line would have been spectacular. There have been a number of interpretations in model form, although all somewhat different so far.

I think I must be Welsh somewhere in my family line. Those pics make me feel homesick of sorts

I can see why it's such an appealing area to model, it's beautiful. I did wonder about doing a model of an extension to the WHR but never went trough with it.
