(F) Bredgar & Wormshill

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.

The ultimate Garden Railway albeit 2' gauge.
Yes it is in a Garden and maybe one day it will double in size if a neighbouring field is purchased.
Here's a couple of photos taken yesterday:

And, for now just the one video. Bear in mind that these photos and the video were taken with a basic Fujifilm Digicam.
Also when filming on the footplate one does have to hang on to prevent any chance of ending up adjacent to HOT METAL. :lol:

Obviously linking to the video will enable access to the Bredgar Album.
However I still have another nine videos to upload so be patient. :wink:

Unfortunately the freeware I used to correct this video doesn't seem to have motion in mind when in the correct plane.

I'll take that back having viewed the corrected video again it now seems to work, previously all I got was sound and a static picture. :?

Gerry,

Nice photos etc - thanks. The B&W is a favourite of mine too. Being so short, at just a few hundred yards, there are loads of trains movements.

I could rue the fact that I am now rather far from it, being in Shropshire - but then I am much closer to a whole load of other narrow gauge railways. :D

cheers

The Bredgar website gives more detail about the carriages. Strangely it doesn't mention the plaque in No. 7, awarded best new UK NG carriage in 2009.
I have probably got the wording wrong, I should have taken photo of plaque. :oops:

I like Bredgar, we take our loco down there for a few months at a time.

This is a video of it climbing the bank into the station.

We take it to Bredgar like this.
