Last of the picks...number 6

The 6th position goes to 'Crichel' in the 'normal' scale of 0-16.5 by Roy Wood. This is a small narrow gauge line which I wouldn't normally be at all interested in as it is served by a motley collection of diesel and steam 0-4-0s. However, it is modelled very nicely, the scenics blend in well with the industrial sections and it has a photo backscene which is quite believable! Mr Wood is a very helpful and convivial bloke, who sits at the side of the layout and is more than happy to explain and debate. His house is also apparently feature in the backscene - nice touch!
There are many others that didn't make it into this top 10 that are worthy of mention, Rheilffordd Cefn Gam, Tan yr Allt, Upton Dale (recently for sale on ebay) to name but a few... Perhaps later I'll do a top 20...
