The Real Hand of God

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.

Heh. Awesome.

I expect to see lots of modellers arms dressed up as construction equipment at the next event I go to! Bit of make up, glue some nuts and bolts to your knuckles...jobs a good'un.

We're gonna need a little rolling stock...and a lot of luck!

I used to have a project link here until the thread was deleted... :(

Don't let the modellers see it they'll all want one! The engine I mean!
