BMRC - O Gauge Lines


The club's early years saw much use of tinplate rolling stock, mostly Hornby items. The vast majority of the loco's were clockwork powered, though it believed that live steam loco's were occasionally used.

Around 1970 the Big-Big range of battery powered models were introduced and these were soon acquired.

During the 1980's Lima introduced a battery powered model of 4F steam loco. These were sold a part of a set that included three mineral wagons. Since these sets were quite reasonably priced the club bought a large number of them. The club also purchased several Lima Class 33 models which were converted to battery operation.

In recent years many club members have purchased or built their own models, many of which are radio controlled. The O gauge lines have also played host to visiting live-steam locos.

Most of the points on the track have moving frogs. This allows both fine and coarse scale stock to be run.
