loco
FOR SALE: Three 15inch narrow gauge locos and stock for sale (Locos now SOLD).
We do not usually advertise miniature railway equipment on these pages, but are making an exception for the much loved RVLR;
The 15" gauge Rhiw Valley Light Railway has closed and is selling off its assets. The Rhiw Valley Light Railway was conceived in the late 1960s by Jack Woodroffe. Jack was a great railway enthusiast and built many railways during his life in gauges ranging from OO to 15".The railway was always Jack Woodroffe's passion and the current owner has been privileged to continue to develop and operate his legacy. Circumstances have led to the decision that the end of the journey has now been reached. 2 Steam locos, a diesel, and a number of coaches and wagons are all for sale. Further details and inspection of the assets can be arranged for genuinely interested parties. Full details can be found at www.rvlr.co.uk. (Click on the above image for a larger version)
