I visited this 5 inch line yesterday. I have know the owner for many years and he has gradually built this up. Yesterday was an open day and guest locos were running.
The line is more like a model layout rather than a ride on railway. The radio controlled trains looked brilliant without human drivers sitting on the stock.

it is fully signalled from two signal boxes and all the points and signals work using model airplane servos.

Brillant metropolitan coaches were brought by a visitor.

Impressive... ive always wondered why people dont do this more, having 5 inch as a garden railway, not for riding on but for watching and controlling. Smile

Ive just started work on my 5 inch petrol electric loco which i hope to get up and running soon. Just need to get hold of a 36 volt motor and 24 volt motor.

Full block working between signal boxes. Repeaters for all signals and points on a mimic board.
