The Great Western Railway
Broad Gauge Society
To most people the image of the Great Western Railway is one of
Churchward 4-6-0's and the ubiquitous pannier tank. However, for
over half its 113 year existence, a totally different character
of railway existed, Brunel's magnificent 7'0¼" gauge.
Home to over 600 locomotives - many of them unique to this gauge
- from the early "freaks" to the Convertibles and "Rovers"
of the 1890's.

A Cornwall between Falmouth and Mevagissey. It is assumed that the
town grew up around it's small harbour and fishing fleet, although
there is also a twice weekly market where the livestock and agricultural
produce of the surrounding area are bought and sold. At the period
when my layout is portrayed, 1905, the town is just beginning to
