Hi Everybody,


Thank You very much for the additional informations. I like the aerial pictures.

Chris Brown´s Emett Trains are very famous. I think, some of them were in AW Nuts Magazine years ago.

Last month somebody sent me scans of the puffin Cut out book and I assembled my first Emett train, using a Fleischmann Magic train chassis.





The original instructions suggested to us a 00 wind up chassis, and since it is more or less in 1 : 22,5 scale, it probably is the first Gn15 kit, 50 years before the term Gn15 was invented.

Have Fun

Hi,

Meanwhile a Smallbrook Station Gn15 NELLIE Kit reached the Kraehwinkel Wokshops in Germany.
The Hornby "made in China" drive sends it along the very narrow rails like a Swiss watch.






The wagon, an enlarged printie from a 1951 papercraft kit, still seems to be a bit too large. No problem, simply print again, 10% smaller. No reason to disturb a dealer.

Have Fun
