Melin Llechi in 16mm narrow gauge

Gauge: 16mm | Period: 1950s-1970s | Region: North Wales | Operating Team: The Melin Llechi Group

Melin Llechi in 16mm narrow gauge.

This 16mm gauge railway is based in North Wales on a typical slate quarry dressing mill in the hills of Snowdonia.

Melin Llechi has all the flavour of a once common scene in many of the slate quarries in the area. The period covered is between 1950 up to the 1970s a time when the quarries were buzzing to the sounds of little locomotives scurrying about shifting the newly quarried rock to the mills for splitting and dressing into finished slates to help roof the world. All locomotives are controlled using radio control via mobile devices therefore not requiring any power to the track.
