My Welshpool & Llanfair light railway in the garden
Posted by emdmike on Sunday, October 6, 2019 4:48 PM

When I built this raised railway, gauge one was the original plan.  But it suits narrow gauge much better. In the videos below, you can see my Pearse live steam "The Earl" pulling first a short string of freight wagons, then in the second video pulling the Pickering passenger coaches.  The wagons and coaches are from Accucraft and are prototypes of the actual W&L rolling stock.  Earl is a gas fired live steam locomotive, RC control and has a working steam whistle.    Mike the Aspie

That is a nice layout. I know you frequently switch themes and engines, but this layout should work with much of your current (and future!) collection.
