7.5-inch Gauge Railroad



7.5-inch gauge is not actually a scale, but rather refers to the distance between the rails. This is the most popular gauge for building large-scale outdoor railroads in which the trains are large enough for people to ride on them.

The 7.5-inch gauge outdoor railroad at the WSMRC is owned and operated by Dale Bearden and is being built by Dale, with the assistance of other WSMRC members. The railroad is located on the grounds of the adjacent Alger Community Church. Construction began in the winter of 2007.
