For my next gauge 3 project, I thought I'd have a go at something different, and you can't get much more different than Brunel's broad gauge. The current thinking is to produce a micro layout for exhibition, inspired by the Abingdon and Faringdon branches, set in the mid 1850's. I chose this period as it fits in with another 'narrow' gauge project. It's a bit more interesting than other G3 stuff I've tried, because virtually nothing is available to buy. Also because until six months ago I knew virtually nothing about the GWR broad gauge. Finally because my mentor and co-conspirator, Unklian, likes to do things right, so it's the G3 equivalent of S7 or P4. The Broad Gauge Soc would probably call it BG13.5 . Track gauge 95mm. Ian has turned a set of Slaters wagon wheels to the new standard, and I've bought a set of Mark Wood's "Lion" wheels which I plan to use to build a Leo class 2-4-0ST. I spent a few hours at Didcot last week, checking out the real thing. Once Reading is out of the way I'm going to build a test track. I'm hoping to stick with my preferred curve radius of 3 metres. This is what I'm thinking of: Disused Stations: Abingdon Station If anyone else out there has been thinking about doing something similar, perhaps we could work together on this?
