I'm not sure if I mentioned this before or not ?
You may already have seen this stuff, way back when, in the N.G.& S.L.G.
The first person I ever saw doing 9.525n3 1/3 was a dude called Robert A. M. Stephens I believe.
He did 1/2" scale turn of the century logging previously, but found 1:24 was a bit big for an indoor layout...
...so he adopted 1:32 & O-gauge track.
I seem to recall he may well have been a professional model-builder also, as he did speak of 'jobs for customers'.
Seems he did create some interest in 3/8n40...
...although his customers in the ended demanded 1 1/8" gauge !
( wealthy rivet-counters by the sounds of it ! )
I did in fact look this guy up on the net a few years ago, when I got back into building stuff.
I managed to turn up absolutely NOTHING though ! ( kinda pre net era I guess ).
But in doing so 'discovered' 1:35n2
His project name was always 'Stillwater Mills' I seem to remember.
This is Gazette kinda late '80s era by the way.
