Isn't it 7 1/4" gauge? bigger than miniature? three sets of stevenson is an achievemnt in any gauge, good stuff, well done
Guess it's relative to what you're comparing it to. It's miniature compared to the prototype but gigantic compared to say HO gauge which is bigger than N gauge.

That's very impressive Les. Well done. Until you put it up there, I had no idea of the mechanics of steam locos. Next time you're in Galston, PM me and I'll come over and say g'day.
