Barry’s   Standard  Gauge

Locomotives  &  Rolling  Stock

 

  This section is to highlight the Standard Gauge locomotives & cars Barry builds.

  These models are scratch-built, modeling Standard Gauge equipment in 1/22.5 scale ratio.
  They run on the wider  Gauge 3  trackage  (not Gauge 1 or LGB / G gauge tracks).
  Still  "G scale"  modeling in 1/22.5 ratio and correct Standard Gauge models.

       ( unlike firms that make “Standard Gauge” models that use the smaller 1/29 or 1/32 scales, that run on LGB G track  )
