Bienvenue chez les Gnu Boys

Bienvenue chez nous. Moi aussi je fais parti des gnouveaux membres même si la K&NWLR est orienté vers vapeur vive et voie (pas si) étroite que Gn15! J´ai quand même trouvé un p´tit coin pour les locos Gn15. Tu trouveras des photos ici sur la site.

Welcome!

K&NWLR: New pub for the estate line

Gnaturally, the hop garden had to find a way of processing and selling the stuff, so a pub has been built (to be called the Green Man to match the Green Farm - it´s a family business) , based on the sadly-missed Little Gem in Aylesford (nice name that, too). And gno end of landscaping still to do, h...

Garden and "Toby"

What an impressive bunch of gnatterers. The "garden" explanation I hadn´t heard of but it would probably be pre-Reformation. Difficult to know prior to enclosure where your field began and your garden ended. And as Kent was one of the parts of the world where the eldest son inherited, the ...

Pocket railway

"Pockets" - exactly. Still trying to work out how to transport a pocket (8 ft high in the real world and weighed 1 cwt) on an estate railway. And while we´re about it, do you know what a "Toby" (name of the loco) was in the hop garden (not field, I´ve been told to say)?

K&NWLR: Taxi service from station to the hotel

This gives me inspiration for a second Gn15 line on the Kent & North Wales Light Railway, linking station to hotel at the harbour, rather like the North Sea Island narrow gauge railways in Germany did - only slightly nore gnarrow.

K&NWLR: Steam power ...

The Gn15 hop garden line on the Kent & North Wales Light Railway takes delivery of a Smallbrook locomotive, fresh from the paint shop, to provide a link between hop garden and "main" 32/45mm line. http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5484/9171288721_894494d8c1_c.jpg K&WNR: Gn15 &q...

St. Trinians .... be afraid, be very afraid ....

The building in the background is St Trinians (from the original films - the prototype is now part of Edinburgh University, I believe). Through the magic of Gn15, the building has now been transported to Kent, where the "gels" have taken charge not simply of the school, but also of the hop...

Just to distract from the lack of progress on the estate gauge railway running round the hop garden above the photos. The St Trinians girls of course will be making beer (and bathtub gin) ... http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3775/8997794455_d563906d70.jpg K&NWLR: St Trinians girls in charge of ...

Wow ...

Hi Daniel, very impressive I have to admit. I model 16mm indoor, live steam, and have just returned to narrow(er) gauges (on the same K&NWLR layout. I´m going to have to study this in more detail, but look forward to seeing more of your work. Andrew http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8369/8580203887_...

If the live steam indoor Kent & North Wales Light Railway can connect SE England with ... err .... North Wales (also with bridges (four), then the 21 miles or so of English Channel has to be technically feasible. The K&NWLR (now with added Gn15) salutes this echo of the engineering genius of...

K&NWLR goes Gn15

After getting the Kent & North Wales Light Railway under way, a live steam dual gauge (32/45mm) indoor layout, combining Kent in SE England with North Wales narrow gauge in a 14m x 6m cellar in Alsace France - got that - I now turn my hand to Gn15 - on the same layout. What can possibly go wgnro...
