1:16, 3½″ GAUGE
Complete sets in cast iron


1:16 scale, ¾″: 1 foot. Standard Gauge on 3½″ track.
See also:   Prices and stock of individual 3½″ wheel castings.

I have two drawings for the tyre profile for 3½″ gauge. (See Form Tools). One is a reproduction of the BR profile at a scale of 1:16 (with a 1.8 mm deep flange), the other has a slightly deeper flange (at 2.4 mm) and is based on the dimensions on the I.B.L.S. web site for live steam models.

Tyre widths: Martin Evans suggests 9.5 mm which is almost exact scale width for a 6 inch wide tyre. IBLS suggest 10.32 mm (13/32″) minimum, presumably to allow for over-scale flange ways.
