Gn15 Figures

Postby Gerry Bullock » Tue Feb 09, 2016 4:43 pm

My modelling days are over as my sight is deteriorating, 5th injection in right eye expected on Friday. I've listed a number of figures on eBay (UK only as postage is too high for EU)
More will follow plus Pepper 7 items and O-16.5 as well as O gauge rolling stock and maybe Locos.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

So sorry to hear that Gerry. I have enjoyed following your modelling exploits and viewing several of your fascinating and entertaining layouts over the past 8 or 9 years. I do hope you will still continue to be able to get some enjoyment from the hobby even though you may not actively be able to continue modelling.

Best regards

Mick

I agree. I hope you don't leave the hobby entirely. Even if you can't make things any more, it is still fun to play with the stuff. I thoroughly enjoy your work. I have recently been exploring ancient threads of yours.

Thanks guys, anno domini I'm afraid nothing I or, currently, medics can do anything about.
Just hoping good eye doesn't go same way too soon (which it will) then I can't drive.

Sad to hear it Gerry

Seems age is a problem in our circles ( of track?)

So sorry to hear that, Gerry. I've always liked your work, and you and Richard Andrews are the reason I initially jumped into the world of GN15, when I took on Ruggin Manor Peat Works (as a confirmed 009 modeller!). Followed by the encouragement and products of one Steve Bennett it continues to be a great decision.

Hi Gerry

Sorry to hear of you health issues.

Likewise admired you work and contribution to this site.

Like others it was your work and Richard Andrews together with Steve Bennett that broadened my interests from 0.16.5 to Gn15

Caught up with Richard Andrews a couple of weeks back with his 0 Gauge layout Chard Creamery which was at our Stafford exhibition.

Catch you this weekend at Shepton

Kind regards

Terry

Hi Terry,

Hoping Gerry won't put out too many expletives at a slight hijack of his thread but I too was at Stafford enjoying Chard Creamery, which I first saw last year (or was it the year before? :oops: ) at the big Gauge 0 Guild jamboree at Telford.

For those that don't know the layout it is about 42" long and consists of three sidings plus a 30" sector plate as a fiddle yard; thus no points. A very nice way of getting quite a lot of operational and scenic interest into a small space IMHO.

More details here:

Cheers,
