Recommended Posts

My father and my neighbours have some pretty intact CBSC trackbed, I always had a pipe dream of laying BnM track and having a railway that goes from near the main road to a lake. I’d have been ne if those locos disguised as a silver G and improvised coaches all refurbished in the farm workshop…….

 

yes you may ask what stuff I’m smoking 🤣

 Sounds nice in theory particularly if you own/control the land with plenty of readily available narrow gauge equipment.

An acquaintance in the UK built a 2' gauge line on an abandoned BR line beside his property https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/threads/mold-train-station-flintshire-wales-august-2020.124923/ getting started tends to be easy part, the real challenge is establishing sufficient resources (time, money, people) even to maintain and operate a short narrow gauge line. 

The Mold narrow gauge line was a private railway, the owner whose main interest was in telecommunication was an active volunteer on a number of hertiage railways and just did not have the time or resources to maintain or operate his own railway, a situation not dissimilar to my own layout's

I'm rather surprised that local drivers of Transit pickups have not removed all the Mold Rly for recycling, obviously without paying for anything. But a few more years and nature will have overgrown the lot!
