Whilst exhibiting Two Sister’s farm the other weekend I took a few photographs of one of the other exhibits at the Beds and Bucks narrow gauge modeller’s open day. I thought you might like to see them.


It is called Mannin Middle OOn3 showing The Isle of Man in the Summer of 1964.


I think it was the tractors and rural look that attracted me.

Great pictures - and modelling. If you hadn't said, I would have thought it was all to a larger scale than OOn3.

I can see why you like the general "look" of the layout - the scenery is excellent.

Apart from the road vehicles - and the "clothes" the people on the layout are "wearing" - the advert for "Camp" coffee syrup helps set this scene in the past. I haven't seen the stuff in the shops for years (not that I've exactly been looking for it - although it was something my late grandmother was used to, I've always preferred a decent filter coffee).


Returning to the topic, I must admit that I particularly like the railcars.

I like it also.

Interesting unit in pictures 3 and 4--looks like it is articulated right behind the front cab- an interesting arrangement.

Peter- I think that you definitely need a radio control tractor to run on Two Sisters roads!;)

I would like a radio controlled tractor down on Two Sister Herb but there just isn’t any room for any roads. So I will have to be content with static models.




As you seemed to like the others here are a few more pictures of some of the other layouts at the show.






















Clydach Valley OO9 scale.

Some very nice stuff there, Peter!

If I have to pick a favorite, I would say photo #6- because it is so difficult to decide where the modeling stops, and the printed backdrop begins.

Again, thank you for sharing :thumb:
