We are slowly but surely building a gallery of pictures of layouts, individual models and even some trade supplies which are in, or about 7mm scale. Simply click on the Gallery thumbnail to view.
|Dave Angel's Texas, Santa Fe & Northern RR
Dave Angell was a very talented model railway enthusiast, whose various layouts appeared in the modelling press and the exhibition circuit over many years. His Texas, Santa Fe & Northern On30 layout was built in his garage and whilst substantial in size and weight could, on occasion, be transported to exhibitions, so be enjoyed by us all. A member of the Slim Gauge Circle, Dave's On30 portable modules are the subject of another On30 Gallery. Tragically, Dave passed away after a short illness in 2015.
|Dave Angell's On30 Modules
Dave Angell was a very talented model railway enthusiast, whose various layouts appeared in the modelling press and the exhibition circuit over many years. His Texas, Santa Fe & Northern On30 layout in his garage is the subject of another On30 Gallery, but more recently Dave had been building On30 Modules as part of the Slim Gauge Circle's On30 Track & Trestle Modular Group. Cleverly, Dave had added an interim board that enabled him to operate his modules with his main layout. Tragically, Dave passed away after a short illness in 2015 and was unable to complete his railroad empire. However, his vision and his undeniable modelling skills live on through his work.
|Stourwood Central - On3 Colorado Narrow Gauge
This modest sized, but beautifully constructed and detailed On3 layout was built by Jim Tanner in the spare bedroom of his South Coast flat. Jim scratch built or modified most elements of his Denver & Rio Grande Colorado-inspired layout.
|On30 Depot - American Prototype Narrow Gauge Layouts
The pictures in this Gallery are to provide inspiration to those who model American style layouts in 1:48th scale, 1/4 inch : 1 foot. They will be primarily On30 gauge, though layouts built to On2 and On3 will also be included, plus the smaller On18 gauge, which uses 9mm track to represent 18 inch gauge, (the equivalent of O9 in 7mm scale) if we find suitable examples.
We hope to be able to divide up these pictures into dedicated albums in due course to make your viewing easier. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the pictures as they are uploaded.
Richard Coney, On30 Depot Superintendent.
