LBSCR E4 'Birch Grove' Back In Service

After a two year overhaul, LBSCR E4 Radial Tank, B473 Birch Grove returned to service today, 30th January, on the Bluebell Railway.

Re: Railway Modeller January 2010

So if a layout is just over 8' long and about 18" wide, would it scale down roughly to N gauge at 4' x 1'?

Railway Modeller January 2010
