EIMCO loco

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.

They were having lots of fun but a few comments:

- The W&R was pushing the Emico to wind up the clockwork spring :wink:

- Point to point layouts are not as interesting as roundy roundy layouts.

- They only have two driver figures or they have two of the same model as he appeared to swap locos.

Thanks for the EIMCO loco posting I have often wondered what noise the five cylinder radial motor (I think) makes. What is the endurance on a full charge? Where did your sample come from? I had assumed that they were principally in America. Questions, questions.
