    Broad gauge modellers?

    The sad news about Richard Chown has again raised a concern in my mind that there are previous few folk doing broad gauge and possibly even fewer layouts. Hence would be interested in establishing a list. To the best of my knowledge, we have:
    Ballyconnel Road in 3mm scale
    Valencia Harbour in 4mm
    Paul Greene's S gauge
    Arigna Town in 7mm

    Is that really it???
    If there are others working to broad gauge, please consider sharing.
    Whither atrophy?

    Is Stanfording built to broad gauge? And what about Advoyle Junction?

    I'm not sure Adavoyle is really an exhibition layout anymore. It's a full-time job for SDMRC.

    I thought the list was for all broad gauge layouts?

    Hi

    I've just completed two 21mm DART sets for a chap and last year converted two 141s & two 071s to 21mm- both are private layouts if that counts?

    I also have two separate orders for 21mm Class A chassis

    A gentleman based in Germany has built a Supertrain-era model of Kilkenny station in 21mm gauge. It was featured in the May 2014 edition of New Irish Lines.

    Starting to look better, thank goodness! Would be nice to see pictures of some of these. No mention of any other 36.75mm gauge though. Surely I can't be in a group of one?
