    This is a diorama I am planning and it’s simply called Stranded. The diorama board is 24cms x 11cms.
    The theme is based on a loco or passenger wagon stranded on a stretch of track. The track I will be now using is Peco code 75 bullhead.

    Gives a whole new look when you remove the webbing and change the spacing...

    can I ask why? (Industrial ?)

    Hi Andy I like the look of narrow gauge railway tracks with larger spacing, so I thought I would apply it to my OO gauge track for this diorama build.

    It did cross my mind on looking at the extended sleeper spacing that a narrow gauge scene is planned.

    No worries. From the comments from other members above, I thought I couldn't see the images for one reason or another !

    Cheers, Gary.
