I’m Ian Stock. This blog is an occasional diary of my leisure interests and activities. Here you can find news of the Bryandale Railway (formerly the Lower Bryandale Railway) which became quite well-known through the series Narrow Gauge in the Garden, which I presented, and the follow-up book The Art of Garden Railways.
I’ve had a number of articles published on both the (L)BR and my indoor models in N gauge. My current project, Stanley, is documented here.
I’m also active in the world of Irish and Scottish traditional music, both here in South-East England and occasionally in the musics’ homelands. I play fretted instruments (mandolins, bouzouki etc.) in a band called Mizenhead.
I have no doubt musings on other issues will creep in from time to time, too.
