16mm & 7/8 to ft live steam/elec locos, turntables, tooling

Stand number: R27

This joint stand show cases two different aspects associated with Garden Rail activities.

John Mileson features his range of unique hand-built locomotives in 16mm & 7/8” to 1 FT scales.

The live steam locomotives are based on the excellent ‘Roundhouse’ chassis modified to suit the prototype modeller.

All have hand-made bodies using heavy gauge brass sheet.

They really are ‘Hand Made’. The only machines that are used are a small band saw and bench drill, the bodies being fashioned using only hand tools.

Each engine is unique and will become a ‘Collectors’ locomotive of the future. Realistically priced, some are radio controlled, others manual.
