I have enjoyed driving loccomotives in a number of gauges from 10 1/4" beasts to 3 1/2" wonders; I still own a lovely 5" GWR Metro loco. But in truth, I now prefer the smaller live-steam locos with a couple of steam-outline elecric-powered ones. This is a selection.
Vale of Rheidol No 9
This lovely hand-built coal-fired loco is a joy and a challenge.
This Gauge 1 live-steam loco is in the workshop for a light clean.
Branch Line perfection. This GWR 1457 is brass and cast but battery-powered.
From the Ffestiniog Railway.
I built this live-steam G1 from a kit. It's Lion masquerading as the Titfield Thunderbolt.
This little Simplex petrol unit is fun to run when I don't want to carry too much. It also negotiates my track at home. The rear waggon is having it's frames tested before I add the sides.
Well, I couldn't go to India so I have a little of it here.
This was the first 16mm model I bought. I've added stuff!
No longer in my stable but miseed. This little oscillating cylinder loco was rather quaint.
Stop that Penguin
The pestky little bird is off again!
