SKIPS in the MUD!

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.

Very interesting. Presumably it is flood defense work, so maybe this should be passed to those who are responsible for it here in UK. Rails and water transport obviously better than rubber wheels on mud.

Now if someone was to produce a kit for some of these. Or possible 3D printed parts to build one.
