Ten and quarter inch track gauge railway trains and the 10.25 inch Railway  Society

Track gauge - Ten and a quarter inch gauge railway trains (10.25 inch)

This long established track gauge working out at about one fifth of full size standard gauge. Originally almost all 10 and a quarter inch gauge railways were built to this gauge with scale models but in recent years narrow gauge prototypes have become more common. These are equivalent to half scale of normal narrow gauge locomotive. This allows two adults to sit side by side inside the engines and carriages. This makes such railways economically viable.

This is an old established railway track gauge with many railways built to this size in the past. The gauge is the distance between the rails measured from the inside edges.

The railway at Rudyard Lake is 10.25 inch in gauge ( the distance between the rails) and to narrow gauge proportions.

Rudyard Lake Steam Railway is one of the largest of the track gauge in the UK if not the world especially the size of the trains and rolling stock The links above tell the story of Rudyard and its ten and a quarter (10.25) inch gauge railway trains.
