Semerdale Railway - D A Naylor

A totally, well almost, scratch built layout constructed to the odd-ball scale of 1/8" to one foot (1/96). British TT scale is 3mm to one foot (1/100). Track gauge is 1/4", 6.35mm gauge. Marklin Z gauge is 6.5mm. The builder found it was the smallest possible scale in which he could construct a 2 foot narrow gauge railway. The key to anything smaller is motors and wheels.

The layout is inspired after several trips to Semerwater near Hawes. Imaginary traffic is threefold - general traffic to and from a large village and the surrounding farms, timber from the freight only branch and seasonal passenger traffic to the area in summer.
