Ravensprings Park home of Brighouse and Halifax Model Engineers is hosting The Gathering on the 24 June form 10 am. The Gathering is the Northern Meet of those affilate with the Facebook Group - Minimal Railways. to quote Chris Stockdale

"For most of us Sir Arthur Heywood's 15 'minimum' gauge of 1874 onwards is a tad large for a back garden or similar. We have neither his space nor his funds. This group is for sub 15" gauge railways that are nevertheless genuine 12 to the foot narrow gauge (as opposed to a miniature of something else, or something that I think is 'miniature' in style). Our ideal is a tiny railway that does a real job of work, however modest, in or around your garden, workshop, allotment or the like. Most such railways are running on 7 1/4" (and its American equivalent, 7 1/2"), with a few using 10 1/4" or 12 1/4". In other words, pretty much anything which is under 15" gauge but 12" to the foot."
