Can anyone shed light on this request. If so please reply to webmaster
My name is Phil Bartlett and I live in South Staffordshire, but was born in Coventry in March 1962. My father knew a dentist named Dennis Blackham who had a large property with a 7-1/4" railway running round it. I recall being taken there one day in the mid 1960s and being laid prone inside a Vale of Rheidol railway coach with the roof put back on,then having a ride behind his Vale of Rheidol railway "Prince of Wales"

Just passing my 58th birthday it occurred to me that I should try and find out the fate of the railway and whether the loco and coach still exist. I have tried a few online enquiries with no luck, so wondered if you might have more resources to search please. My father was Peter Bartlett who ran Finisters Models in Coventry from around 1962 until we moved to Wales in 1971.
