Driving Creek Railway Accident

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

Driving Creek Railway Accident

The DCR in New Zealand has unfortunately made the news following an accident where a young child fell from the train while it was crossing a bridge. http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/69568988/19monthold-falls-from-train-plummets-25-metres

Initial investigation into 381mm gauge DCR requires a secondary interlocks mechanism on coach gates.

Thank goodness we don't need to replicate in Gn15.
