UK's Shortest Branchline.

A general talking shop for any subject under the sun (even Monty Python). This would also be a good place to make suggestions about the site itself or about these forums (or "fora", if you're particularly pedantic).

Interesting experiment.
Wonder if somewhere on this planet there is a low traffic situation, not an amusement park, where 15, 18, 20, inch gauge equipment would be suitable.

is this still running? seem to remember it as on the Michael Portillo series recently, so assume it is still running.

Narrow gauge Francophile interested in 1m, 60cm,50cm , 40cm and smaller gauges . Build in scales from 1/6th to 1/24th. Also 1/32nd and 1/35th using 16.5mm track to represent 50cm and 60cm gauges.

Looks like it is still there shuttling backwards and forwards on its 3/4 mile branch. I wonder how fast it would go if "yow cud gi it sum 'ommer". You may need a Black Country dictionary to translate that last bit!
