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.

While trying to scan some of the vast multitude of slides that I have to do, I came across this one taken (IIRC) Summer of 1968 at Bicton Gardens

Most of the others are of broader gauges which I know others on here wont be interested in! (Unless you tell me different!)

Just lovely loco, had dreamt about making a model of it many times. Thanks for the photo.

Is there a drawing somewhere on the net, does anyone know ?

there's a GA drawing in the Smithers 18" book (I think you have a copy, if not get in touch Henrik).

on the net there are also a couple of drawings:

a side elevation from jay tilston on flickr

and this copy of the GA from the blog detailing the restoration of Woolwich at crossness (not the highest resolution, but could be useful).
