It was only a Gnatter of Time

It was indeed only a matter of time before a dabble into G9..

Inspired by the G9 postings here in the Gnut house, I bought a length of Peco 009 track and a wagon from Mr Bennett recently.

A few years ago I picked up a lovely little N gauge loco and repainted it -

It ran like the clappers on its own and was far too light in weight to pull anything.

I added some coffee stirrers and a few bits of lead

With track laid and "baseboard" fixed onto a thin box file (in which the rolling stock will be stored) power was applied and the little thing ran nice and slow. Thinking of a new body for the little critter I remembered something I'd seen in Garden Rail..

I knew where this was going the minute I saw the model!

Just as long as you don't do a load of G scale mini Stockers to infest the place...
