Hi All A quick question, anyone know what length the temporary track panels used by Bord na Móna are? I’m guessing 40 to 50 foot. I’m sure they probably vary widely but is there any standards at all? I’m looking at modelling a couple of narrow gauge bogie bolster wagons with track panels on, and am just trying to get an indication Of the length they should be.
Hi All, I am a novice to modelling anything, I have a large stash of 00 gauge bits. However I have always had an interest in narrow gauge railways particularly the Tralee and Dingle. I also volunteer on the Stradbally Woodland and Cavan & Leitrim Railways, along with being a co-ordinator for the Avonside "Nancy" Restoration Project. I recently purchased a minitrains boehler 0-4-0WT and sent it away to be customised by James Hilton (available on Google) into one of the Andrew Barclay 0-4-0WT locos, the results are astonishing! I'm tempted to go and form a small BNM outline layout with a few turf wagons. Any suggestions would be welcome. I have just sent away two partially built Chivers Tralee and Dingle Hunlset loco's to be modified and detailed for me, will update you when they return.
Gday all, Live in Australia and fell in love with the bord na mona peat bog railways on a visit to my girlfriends home in Waterford last year. I have started modelling a layout 9 foot by 3 foot in On16 and need some help in getting a sense of scale for the models. If anyone has any plans or the ability to do simple measurements it would really be appreciated, specifically the wagons and locos such as the simplex and railmotors. I will keep all updated with the building process and thank all for the inspiration I have gained of your threads. Glad to be able to share with like minded people and will pick your brains for tips and tricks as I go if thats ok. Phil
