(F) Royal Enfield rail cycle

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

Royal Enfield (Yes they do make BIKES).

As a real prototype for anything picture, this may seem to be one of the daftest yet, but hey if it works?

Great fun, isn't it? I was at the Llanberis slate museum a couple or so weeks ago and took my own photos of this splendid run about.

Bill thanks for the link, I am thinking that our 7.5" gauge rail park in Airdrie could use one of these as an inspection vehicle:
