Help - U.K SAR info wanted

Post by btiratsoo » Sun May 28, 2023 4:43 pm

Hello all

It's has been a long time since I posted but glad the old log in still works. I have been talking to a modelling friend about garden railways and the subject of SAR mineral layouts came up. I seem to recall a raised level layout based on an SAR(?) theme here in the U.K. I think it was 45mm track and it had a very interesting control and signalling system. Now I can't remember if this was in an issue of Garden Rail - it would have been somewhere between 2013 and 2015 - or whether it was on Youtube.

Can anyone help and shed any light on the subject for me please?

Cheers
Ben

And it no longer exists. The owner and builder dismantled it all earlier this year: http://nwwales.16mm.org.uk/cshhr.html

Unfortunately, he broke Garden Railway Rule No. 1: Wood has no place when building a garden railway. I saw Ian only yesterday and he was telling me that he's sold the track and gave away the rotting timber to neighbours for their wood-burners. He still has the stock though, but it is all up for sale.

Very sad news, indeed.
This was a very well thought out operation.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, it was a fantastic set up and I’m very sorry to hear of its demise.
