Heywood bogies?

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.

Heywood bogies?

Postby DuffieldBank » Thu Mar 13, 2014 12:50 am

Hello chaps. Would anyone have some photos showing the Heywood bogies sans carbody? Perhaps at Perrygrove?

I'd like to give the design some study.

Thank you

Chris

I just received Mike Decker's drawing package for the Heywood cars...incredible...and it includes drawings for four different styles of bogies. Highly recommended.

I think (I hope) I have the right photo but here is a shot of a bogie in place.

It's fun lying on the ground for the detailed shots, isn't it?

cheers

Very interesting. Please tell me these aren't just dumped outside?

It's normally in the museum, but they are rebuilding it, so all the exhibits seem to be dumped outside, some under the platform canopy, but others just exposed to the elements.

the remains of a couple of theakston wagons are dumped outside. One of the things that saddens me is that following the fire/rebuild there doesn't seem to be a siding into the museum any more, so synolda is in the loco shed where you can't see her, rather than in pride of place in the museum. Bonnie Dundee was in the carriage shed last week as well. No sign of Katie though I heard they're close to completing the restoration a little while back.

Where were the theakston wagons? was looking for one to measure up when I was there, but couldn't find one. I did however measure up the Haywood wagon, though I assume this is a replica?

body parts are alongside the long headshunt (the one that runs alongside the BR line). they're in flat pack form, and much rusted.
