All Heywood stock removed from the Perrygrove

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

:cry: :cry: I cant believe that news!?

I think that's a big mistake myself - going along to Perrygrove to see the Heywood stock - even if they were in the shed there and then of course when Ursula and the stock was running it was really something very special indeed. Such a shame...

Best wishes to James Waterfield - I hope that he can find a new "home" soon.

Sad news indeed, but let's hope that James is able to find a new home for the collection and it can once again be seen in a way that does it proper justice.
Regards to all,

Does anyone know what the current situation is with the Heywood collection from Perrygrove?

Cheers

I'd recommend you go Gavin, it's still an interesting line, moderately priced with as many goes as you like for your entry payment and the ability to quickly and easily get to a range of good spots to grab photos.

cheers,

As an added incentive to visit in 2015, Perrygrove have purchased a second Exmoor locomotive, namely the 0-6-2T 'John Hayton' from Longleat.
