OK, so this is a link to a British website offering kits in British OO scale, which is 1/76, rather than 1/87 like HO.

These kits build up to narrow gauge that runs on N gauge track, IE HOn2.5. So the narrow gauge guys may find much to like here, but, consider what we could do with some of it in HO standard gauge? I have looked at some of these an mused as to possibilities. Take a look, and post your thoughts!

Those are lovely models. I can just imagine a small layout based on a slate quarry.

Great models. Thanks for the link. I had the opportunity to visit Wales with my family a couple of years ago and ride on some of the narrow gauge there. Did not ride on the Ffestiniog at that time but got to ride on the new Welsh Highland behind a Garratt. Great experience if it hadn't been for the constant downpour.

Would be great doing a small layout based on those small railways.

I've built a couple of these locomotive kits (the armoured Simplex and the Billard T-75D)and they are quite nice, though getting the mechanisms running is quite a challenge. You might be able to get a standard gauge mechanism inside the Simplex but it would be a tight fit. I don't think the Billard is doable unless you make it inside framed... I'd really like to get ahold of more of the WWI stuff for a mini layout...
