Grandchildren Visiting, Today we went to Bekonscot Model Village, Again.

Those of you who regularly view this Blog will realise that we have been to Bekonscot Model Village before, but, it is a wonderful Model Village with a fabulous HO Gauge Model Railway; Just right for the Children in us all. 

The Popularity of Bekonscot is clear to see on their stats board near to the exit.

For the many of you who are fans of the Morgan or other Classic Cars there are a number of Models among the Buildings and Train Tracks, including at least one Morgan, albeit minus a Steering Wheel..  

The rest of the Photos in this page are taken in sequence as we walk the narrow paths. There are many different Trains running along the various Routes of Track. I hope that I have managed to take most of them.
On Youtube there is an interesting film of the journey around the whole network starting from underneath of the complex Signal Box. It is a Train Drivers Eye view of the layout. It is well worth watching. Just click on the Link here:
