Built to a scale of 1:19, or 16mm to 1 foot, and 16 inches long, this model is built of stainless steel and brass, is internally gas fired and can be manually or radio controlled. 16mm scale on O-gauge (32mm) track, representing a prototypical 2 foot gauge, is a popular garden railway format in the UK. This model is based on Lyn as returned from overhaul by the Southern Railway at Eastleigh in 1929 - the planned configuration for the new build project.

This electrically-powered Bachmann version is in G-scale (1:22.5) rather than 16mm scale which makes the model a little smaller than the model above, although both can use the same 32mm or 45mm gauge track, by adjusting the wheelsets.

L&B Models

This finescale cast resin kit runs on standard-gauge HO/OO track, but is built to 7mm (O scale), depicting 2 foot gauge. This allows narrow gauge models to be built using standard commercial HO/OO scale running gear, track and accessories. O-14 gives a more accurate gauge in this scale, but requires scratch-built track as none is commercially available.
