    With all due respect, in 2mm that's ridiculous!

    And I mean wonderfully ridiculous.

    These are some gauges that I've had made the idea is that they will fit between the sleepers of both running lines and so hope fully give me an almost perfect curve they heve holes in them so that they can be fixed down and just gradually move them around the baseboard (does that make sense )

    Your Beames Tank loco looks really nice John - I didn't realise that these were new in 1923 !! (I just looked it up) - looks much older, and almost like the kind of loco Webb might have built ?

    I'm really looking forward to watching your railway progress.

    Cheers
