ABOUT JOE NEMETH ENGINEERING
The next engine was a “Bonds o Euston” road 3 1/2 inch gauge Royal Scot. Other locos I have built include 5 inch gauge super detailed GWR 55XX 2-6-2 tank , 7 1/4 inch 0-4-0 Hunslet , & a 7 1/4 inch gauge 0-4-2 “Tinkerbell” type named “James”. This Loco was built for the Oldown miniature railway and ran for 3 years, the park now sadly closed. I work with my eldest son , Dan who has been working with me since he was 15 years old. He has attained a high level of skill and experience and we work as a team. We have worked on over 60 locomotives including bespoke commissions.
From an early age I developed a love of Signalboxes during a visit to the Bala Lake Railway while on holiday with my parents in the early 1970s. After climbing the steps and peering through the window of LLanuwchllyn signal box and seeing all those different colored lever with shiny handles and the instruments I was hooked. Sadly the railway was closed on that occasion and I was unable to go inside. Over the years the passion for these lovely places grew and I took an interest in reading and learning as much as I could about Signal boxes and Signalling.
