Sakuradani Light Railway

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

Now if someone creative could only make paper models of those trains? Sigh!

If you goto "Gnomy to Gnatter" back in 2006 you'll find the first reference to this railway.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Thanks Gerry. I'll check it out. Too bad there are no more Gnomy toys any more.

Plenty at Ebay and of course still on some German Dealers shelves.
Dimensions and proportions are more for 0 Scale, Too small for most Gn15.

Have Fun

Thanks Juergen
I actually have the tipper car somewhere in the house. I'm sure archaeologists will find it someday.

If I remember right, Steve Bennett used the bucked from a Gnomy toy skip for one of his models.

For my speeder I used lanterns and the horn from a Gnomy truck http://gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10116
Unfortunately thast thread got pirated and ended somewhere in a far away desert. My speeder is still running fine with the Deltang equipment.

Have Fun

Juergen
