Playing with model steam locomotives in 1989

Hi,

I came across this short old video made by a friend of our first 16 mm scale model railway known as Rhydypenau Light Railway and back then 16 mm layout were fairly rare. The locomotives are; an R/C Merlin Maestro, a Mamod and Toucan a modified Mamod.

Take care Tony.

I remember seeing the layout around the local shows - I always liked the overall roof at the station. I had forgotten about Toucan completely though!
