About Me

Mr Dale E Buttolph

Welcome to The Buttolph Flyer Group

I have been the proud owner of 08097 since 2016 

Trains have been my passion since I was small but on the full scale locomotives. It was only in 2016 after visiting a miniature Railway in Norfolk that I became interested in the small scale version 

I was surprised at the amount of interest out there which is how I decided to set up a page dedicated to 08097, it quickly became popular and every supporter and follower I can’t thank enough, it’s so much appreciated.

Since those early days we have gone from strength to strength, creating a website and more recently our own merchandise, I never would have believed we could achieve so much in a short space of time. 

Our times are spent at clubs, mostly in Norfolk but we were fortunate enough to purchase some ground level track in 2018 from another railway and we now have that on our land, which has been fantastic for testing our locos before club days and inviting friends and family for open days. 

For 2019 we will be extending the track and welcoming other clubs on selected days 

We now have members who have joined our club, if you are interested then please check out our website 

Any queries don’t hesitate to contact us 

08097 is named in memory of my Great Nan and Grandad
