Welcome to the UK Standard Gauge Industrial Railway section!

Recommended Posts

Following some sensible lobbying I'm pleased to provide a forum area dedicated to UK Std Gauge Industrial Railway modelling and prototype information.


If you have any existing topics you wish to have moved into this area please reply to this topic with a link to the topic you wish to move and I'll take care of it for you.

Thanks for the new section, Andy. I'm looking forward to a few more industrial layouts coming out of the woodwork but to kick things off, please move my Bury. Thorn & Sons layout topic in here. Link below (in sig).

Hi Andy,


Please can you move my latest box file layout over to this section ?


The link is http://www.rmweb.co....__1#entry279408


I think it fits within the category, - it's based on a small, ficticious factory, based somewhere in the UK at some time in the recent-ish past...






Gosh, that was quick - thanks !
