Bord na Móna Track Panels

Rate this question



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 dave182

Way to long std WAGR rail length for 3'6" gauge was 22' and that was pretend standard gauge, not a temp bog line

I would suggest doing a search on Decauville (spelling) portable railway the track lengths where very short so a couple of men could just dump it on the ground bolt it up and get trains moving quickly in war time the English version Ex WD is probably what the Bord na mona use for temporary bog track with a more substantial "main line"

regards John
