Remote from the majority of the Welsh narrow gauge railways, the Welshpool & Llanfair differed from other Welsh lines in several respects. It was not built for slate traffic, it used the unusual gauge of 2' 6" and was a product of The Light Railway Act. Set in the lovely Welsh border country many of the items described have been restored and can still be seen on the Preserved Line.

W & L are supplied with 9mm gauge wheelsets. However it is not difficult to modify the kits for 12mm gauge running and kits can be supplied with the 12mm gauge wheelsets if required.

If you require 12mm please state clearly as 9mm will normally be supplied.

BUT! Please see note on wheels on home page
