New Hey’s life – with me at any rate – ends next year, when hopefully North Ballachulish will be ready for exhibition, probably at Rochdale 2016. New Hey will probably go up for sale around this time next year although I’m open to offers now lol.

However I’m always looking for another project beyond the one currently on the stocks, and given all the locos and rolling stock I have from New Hey, another Rochdale MBC based layout seems likely to be on the cards. Welcome to Wardleworth….. Oozes character.
