    Good morning everyone,
    A bit more news regarding Narrow Gauge Garden Railways. We have been given a section of land for our Cornish Narrow Gauge Garden Railway Group, at Moseley Toy and Train Museum at Tolgus near Redruth in Cornwall.
    Ground work will hopefully commence in March 2020. This will be a permanent site similar to Butterly in Derbyshire but with our own design.
    Once built everyone will be welcome there is a cafe on site where teas, coffees and biscuits can be purchased and run by the owners of Moseley Museum with help from volunteers. Further updates to follow in the New Year.
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Hi Pete,
    Thank you I will certainly let you know. We have also formed a committee and hold proper meetings which is a lot better as you can converse with members of our group and discuss plans. We are very lucky as one of our members is a qualified surveyor so that will save us money. And we have our own bank account to put funds into which is great.
    Will keep you posted,
    Regards,
    Gloria.
