   The Disk and Crossbar Pages Preview Go
Come look at the Great Western Railway (GWR) in the days when traffic was controlled with the disk and crossbar signal, approximately 1838 to 1874. It was a time of wonder, a time of social change, a time of legends, a time of heroes a time when a man who drove a locomotive from London to Exter and back in a single day was looked upon much as a lunar astronaut is now.

   A short history of Britain's broad gauge railways Preview Go
In 1835, in the early days of railway construction, the Great Western Railway was born. The original main line ran between London and Bristol, a distance of 117 miles (187 kms), which was opened throughout in June 1841. What made the Great Western Railway unusual was the choice of gauge. Instead of building the railway to what became the British standard gauge of 4ft 8½ins, the track was laid to a gauge of 7ft 0¼ins (“broad gauge”). Over the following 25 years, many of the railways connecting to the Great Western Railway built their lines with broad gauge track, resulting in a network of broad gauge railways extending from London to Bristol, Wolverhampton, South Wales, Weymouth, and westward through the counties of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall to reach Penzance. At its peak in 1868, broad gauge railways covered 1,070 miles

This is a journey of developing a basic train set oval and siding into a four station layout and changing from DC to DCC operation.
   Wilverton GWR Preview Go
Wilverton is a fictional station on the North Devon line. The site describes the model of this station (EM-gauge) with an emphasis on scratchbuilding.
   Fairford Branch Line Layout Preview Go
This layout began as a result of reassessing a new portable layout project in 1990-91 and will show the development to its present state as well as some of the problems encountered and their solving.

   Roy's Rail Page Preview Go
A rapidly developing site following the chance re-discovery of a collection of railway photographs, slides and negatives in my loft. Mostly dating from the 1960's also a few taken by my uncle in the 1930's. The purchase of a new scanner and digital technology has enabled previously unprintable negatives to reveal memory evoking images

This website is about anything remotely to do with the Great Western Railway. It includes photos, general information on Locos, lines and stations, and links to other interesting GWR sites. Hope you enjoy it!!
   Little Stoke Layout Preview Go
After modelling for nearly 30 years in 00 gauge, I thought it would be a challenge to produce a small tail-chasing exhibition layout that would fit into the rear of my car and therefor, do it in N gauge.
