Back in the Woods - 7 1/4" Gauge Society AGM 2022

Following our most enjoyable attendance of the 7 1/4" Gauge Society AGM in 2021, we were delighted to be offered the opportunity to return to Echills Wood Miniature Railway in 2022 with our stand and a host of the many new additions to our product range that we have worked so hard to bring through in 2022. We really enjoy the AGM at MRW. It brings enthusiasts of the hobby together from the far reaches of both the country and the world and is a celebration of playing trains, perpetuating our interest in miniatures and giving us something to look forward to beyond scheduled club running.

Setting the Stand

Sometimes it takes the organisation of an event to reflect on how much we have brought forward to our range in the last year. Alongside tinplate oil bottles and feeders, Morris Lubricants Oils and Hurricane steam raising blowers to name a few. Our growing range of products manufactured in partnership with Colin Edmondson was also on display, including profile gauges and his unique click & play portable track range, soon to be available on our website.

We also had the opportunity to show off our new Neptune 3 demonstrator battery electric loco. Finished in BR blue with unique wasp stripes and cranks for some dynamism, we were very pleased to be able to offer people the opportunity to try out first-hand a brand new loco and our portable track, laid in less than 20 minutes naturally!

We were blessed with good weather and familiar faces - it was excellent to see many who have seen us grow and use our products for themselves. When you're often so busy designing, making and running a business, it means everything to hear such positive feedback about our track, tinplate and blowers. Just as we work so hard everyday to develop useful and interesting designs, we're very pleased to hear our products working so hard themselves on a daily basis.

Angus, one of our long standing customers, was there with his large American locomotive and two of our hand made oil bottles. He found the bottles to be the ideal companion to his large miniature loco and traction engine alike.

Playing Trains

With such a lot on, we
