Much Wenlock Station 3” gauge modellers

Recommended Posts

Hi

Does anyone know what happened to this Station Building that I constructed around 10+ years ago, I believe it is now on a Garden railway layout for the 3” guys?

Hi GT,

 

I suspect you mean Gauge '3' (G3) which is 2.5" gauge - so 1:22.6 scale (13.5mm/ft) for standard gauge. Pretty much standard gauge 'G'.

See: https://www.gauge3.org.uk/

 

And yes, it certainly looks familiar, something like the one attached below I think. It now belongs to a Gauge '3' Society Member and is installed on his garden railway, although it only comes out on running days (it's not suitable for all-year outside use). A very nice model though. If you are the original builder, then I'm pretty sure I met you at a G3 AGM some years ago or perhaps that was the (then) owner?

 

Regards,

 

IanT

It has gone on 'Tour' too from time to time.

 

We laid a temporary (300ft plus) end to end G3 track at Barry Island station some years ago - and needed a bit of layout dressing for interest - so 'borrowed' the station and various other scenic bits.  It all went down very well with the Public - we gave youngsters a R/C engine controller and told them they could travel up and down the line - but only use the single track sections if they had a 'token'. They were very well behaved too ( there were no accidents) - better than some of the adults!

Here we are setting things up before we opened for the day...

Hi Ian,

thankyou so much for these photos, absolutely fascinated to see these pictures, it was the only model I ever built in a large scale and a challenge to put the detail in, in such a large scale.

so very kind to post these up.

You are very welcome GT - it is a very fine model.

 

I've just found my favourite photo of your station (I looked for it the first time around but missed it). I hope you like it.

 

Regards,   IanT

Hi Ian,

Ahh yes, now I have seen that photo before, we were at the NEC show and I said to my wife, doesn’t that look like Wenlock I once built, it was a hoot on the gauge3 stand.

At the time on close inspection, I discovered it was, I couldn’t believe it.
