THE ABERCANYON RAILROAD


A 45mm Gauge Railroad built by

Mike & Cecilia Lilley

The Latest News Update:

Mike has been continuing with the

repairs to his baseboards

Shortly after the last open day at the Railroad in October, track on the long straight was lifted and the boards were removed. Inspection revealed the frames to be in good condition, but a bit of tweaking was necessary. The results are seen in the photographs, above. The replacement boards are timber but this section of the line is in an area that dries well after rain.

The Abercanyon Railroad is a 45mm gauge line with continuous running and shunting facilities and is raised above ground level by approximately 1200mm. It has a minimum track radius of 4 ft. but with LGB radius 5 curves on the main line. The loading gauge clearances are 150 mm width and 350 mm height. There is track power on part of this line, but this will not be in operation when Mike and Cecilia hold events for our Group.
