Stoneleigh represents a typical British narrow gauge line. Once serving a quarry that has been run down and closed, a preservation group has moved in and things are looking up. The railway is now neat and tidy and more trains than ever are being run.

The layout is built to 7mm to the foot (O) scale, but runs on narrow gauge 16.5mm track.(The same rail spacing as OO/HO).

Locomotives and stock are mainly scratchbuilt and the choice of gauge means that readily available mechanisms and underframes can be used.


The layout underwent an update prior to showing at the Wilmington 2012.
Changes include an exchange siding with a standard gauge railway.
