Warton Road 

‘Gauge 3’ 

Warton Road is a small terminus station modelled to Gauge 3 standards, being to a scale of 1 to 22.5 with a track gauge of 2.5”, a scale well suited to the garden.  The railway is run by a preservation group which has taken over a fictional branch, axed during the Beeching cuts.  The society operates a true community railway with frequent steam trains for tourists utilizing a range of GWR, BR and SR locomotives supplemented by regular first generation DMU stock for the off peak passenger services.  This gives a good variety of train formations and stock, much of which is displayed on the layout rather than stored off-scene.  All models are battery powered radio controlled and many have sound fitted.  The layout has been constructed on a modular basis which gives scope to vary what is displayed to suit the space available.
