Things just seem to fall into place. I have been working on a small N scale tram layout for the past months (read about it on my n tram blog
), but have gotten quite unhappy with it recently as most of my trams won't make it through 103mm radius curves. Plans have slowly started to evolve to build a new tram layout, a long, thin one this time. So there was a little layout laying around i've been reluctant to continue working on.
Now, I was just going through some earlier projects (some finished, most not) and found my little G9 pizza
'Vern's Ferns', which was a joy to build but not that interesting to operate when it was done. And then suddenly it happened:
The perfect base for a new G9 project! (I think I'll cheat a little and use Vern's barn, he won't mind
) Now I just have to find a nice prototype. Will it be a German coastal railway, a little peat railway, maybe a lavender railway, or... Any ideas (the more unusual, the better!) are welcome.
And there's a little problem to solve. The Kato chassis I used under my G9 stock doesn't like the Tomix mini turnouts, despite added weight. Any ideas how to solve this would be really appreciated.
Now if you don't mind, I have some minimum gauge dreaming to do
