The 7mm Narrow Gauge Association aims to encourage the modelling of
narrow gauge railways at a scale of or around 7mm to 1 foot (1:43)



Townshend Gardens (Aneurin Redman-White) Picture Gallery

These photos are of my micro layout 'Townshend Gardens', named for my friend Jess and her love of garden railways. It's built in an old Amstrad computer case measuring just 24×16in and represents a small 15in gauge park railway somewhere in England in the last 25 years. This is my first project as an adult modeller and my first in 7mm scale. It was intended to be small, portable, easy to build, and provide a fun way to test and showcase locos and stock.

The green locomotive is "Peridot", a Minimum Gauge Models body on an Arnold chassis. The orange one is "Pumpkin", an A1 Models body on a Tomytec chassis. All rolling stock is scratchbuilt in plasticard on Peco and Arnold chassis. Track is Peco OO-9, and scenery is from a range of sources including Skytrex castings.
