5028 Llantilio Castle.
The "life" story of Great Western Castle Class locomotive 5028 Llantilio Castle. She was "unsung" but well liked by the footplate men who fired and drove her.
5028 was the only Castle Class engine to be withdrawn directly as a result of an accident.
Little Stoke Layout
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.
A short history of Britain's broad gauge railways
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
