A friend recently gave me a cutting from the Railway Modeller for December 1952 which describes an "old LNWR No.3 Gauge Exhibition line .. as it appeared at a 1912 show". The photograph shows an 0-8-0 with what appears to be two D54 5-plank wagons, three 4-plank wagons, a cattle wagon, an inside-framed van and a brake van. A second photo shows a lever frame with probably 17 levers.

Could this be the signalling school model, or something different? The posts above talk of 2in gauge (Gauge 2), but this is described as 2.5in gauge (Gauge 3).

I don't see how this can be copyrighted, so here's the photo I referred to above. Although describes as "Gauge 3" it looks to be 3-rail which seems unlikely, though not impossible.

Mike, I suspect that one is something entirely different. The layout would seem to be entirely different from that described by Sydney, with no sign of a double junction nor a refuge siding. I don't think the instructional model would have had any scenery, and in seems there was no representation of a signalbox, only an uncovered lever frame.

That is quite apart from the constructional details ...

... which (of course) raises the question of who built it, and why - just for this exhibition in 1912?

Cheers, Reg
