Time to say Thank You to Gerry for all he has done for the Gnatterbox and propbably for the modell railroad fraternity.
I have to blame him and Ralph Brammer (Rockley Bottom) for converting me to Gn15 scale many years ago.
The first steam loco ever to run in Kraehwinkel for the KEG was his famous red saddle tank loco. Complete with a Carlo Spirito driver.
The first one, which ran with battery / RC from various makers. Today with Deltang RC of course.
Only two or three years ago annother RB loco was offered at Ebay Germany. It found a new home in Kraehwinkel as well
Only recently, while walking along the Salinas at the south tip of La Palma Island I was thinking of Gerry´s layout and of course, whenever I use a rivet, the World Famous Rivet Plantation with Wallace & Gromit sneaks up my mind.
So whatever happens to Gerry. His work influenced quite a few of us.
