Lawn Locomotives

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.

Headline on front page of yesterday's Gardening Section of Telegraph.
Section covered Garden Railways, indicated that "width of rails" was key statistic. Then went onto list 1/2" to 15" as the range.
Surprisingly they then included photo of Sir William McAlpine's Fawley Hill Railway - Standard Gauge. :?
Having said that there was info on the Birchley Light Railway (10 1/4") in Kent.
House & Railway currently on market for £1.2 million!

Also featured in my neck of the woods - The Wimbish Light Railway (10 1/4"); link here:
http://www.wimbish-railway.co.uk/
Track plan to be found therein.
Quite a few Society links were included - Heywood, Ten & a quarter inch, Seven and a quarter inch, G scale, & 16mm NG Modelling.
I wonder what the Gardeners thought :?: :roll:
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.
