O Gauge garden railway. HELP, what have I inherited?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, My father has recently passed and left behind boxes of garden railway. I do not have any idea what I have, if it is worth anything or if it would be something amazing. For this reason I dont want to stick it on Facebook if it could be a real find for a real enthusiast. I have taken numerous photos and tried to list out what there is. Firstly the distance between rails is 32mm and according to Google this is O gauge.

 

60 x 1 yard lengths of flexi track (metal rails/plastic sleepers) The words on the under side of the sleepers say "Stream lline Devon patern applied for PECO"

4 x left hand turnout points

4 x right hand turnout points

Plastic track - 4x straight, 12x curves

Jig stone mould set

2kg scale bricks

6x Center couplings

2 x Hudson Bolster wagons

Halt & booking office plastic model kits

2 x buffer stop kits

Bogie kits

Box full of wheeks, gears, tail lamp, motor, bogies, track pins and coal hoppers

EZEE range daisy railcar kit including guard van & 2 passenger coaches

5 x grey wagons

1 x grey brake van

2 x green pasenger coaches

1 x Shell tank wagon

1 x yellow flatbed wagon

4 x red passenger coaches

1 x black flatbed wagon

 

Locos

 

Mamod steam railways engine. This is part built and has all instructions (Think this may be live steam as the instructions mention cylendar and exhaust build stage?)

 

1 black battery operated loco. This works and goes forwards and backwards

1 red battery operated loco. This works and goes forwards and backwards, also has directional lights.

 

Any helps with this would be greatly appriciated.

Hello,
My condolences on your loss.

What you have there is 16mm narrow gauge. That is a scale of 16mm to the foot or roughly 1 to 19. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16_mm_scale
Although it uses the same gauge track as O-scale.

If you don't find anything on here (we're mostly OO-scale but some people might have multiple interests) then there are forums that cater for 16mm scale and I've found some links below.
https://www.16mm.org.uk/resources/online-groups/the-garden-railway-forum/

https://gardenrails.org/forum/index.php

But, if you start by searching "16mm narrow gauge" on ebay you might get an idea of the value of some of it.

I hope that is of some help.
Barry.
