Railways with a difference

Hiya , Im new to this forum and would like to ask if anyone else out there has built completely different model railways - I am at present building a 7mm:1ft (0) scale model of the Listowel and Ballybunion railway thats used to run in Ireland. It was an odd and strange monorail system also known as the Lartigue system.

I was wondering if anybody else has tried or is in the process of building it. I find it is much much more interesting to build a model of something that hardly anyone else has heard of , let alone modelled I will post pictures here as i work on it.

It has acctually been completely rebuilt in Ireland now and is running - even though the locomotive was built by Alan Keef and is now a Diesel Instead!

Hi Madkitten and welcome.

That's certainly an interesting prototype for a model, and one I feel sure I have some data on - I'll have to look when I have a few spare hours!

I'd be interested to see the project as it develops.

Incidentally us chaps will have to behave now we have a lady present
