The video will open in a new window.

Toby the Tram was an engine on the Wisbech & Upwell Tramway on which Outwell Basin was a depot for road / rail / canal transhipment. Here a variety of light railway locos, hauling typical trains can be seen, allowing display of a variety of stock.

Outwell Basin belongs to Chris Hyde who for a long time was secretary of the Heywood Model Railway Group. Chris had said that he has done the secretaries job for too long now and has stood down so that he will have more time for his modelling activities.

In fact since handing over the Secretaries job Chris has now produced yet another Exhibition model which attended our March 2002 event and can be seen on the "Metropolitan" page.
