When talking in chat today a question was asked for which we did not have a answer.

Can anyone help in locating a 1/32 scale Gnomy.

Several members would be interested in any information that you may have.

Gnomy is a brand of toy trains and trucks produced by LGB. They're close to O scale and get bashed into all sorts of things.

They have a trolley that gets used a lot.

I asked about a 1/32 trolley that could be used the same way.

Go to the Gnomy link listed below my name.

Ah, now I know.  When I was working in Germany there were entire shops with nothing, but LGB in them in little villages miles (kms.?) from anywhere.  But I never saw any in a garden!  I take it LGB stands for Lehmann Garten Bahn?

Cheers, Martin

Martin-Grosse Bahn...BIG TOY TRAINS. These days, G stands for garden I suppose. I'm really not looking for 1:32 scale trolley bodies, but others may be interested. There are many types of vechicles made in this scale, seems that someone would get out a small 4 wheel trolley like a Brill or Birney even if it is a die cast model. Might make a neat diorama-a scene with an old Model T broke down in front of a trolley with the motorman hollering at the motorist while a dog pees on the car's wheel. Ahhh, imagination...

Hi Woodie,

Grosse Bahn....silly me.  Not my cup of tea anyway.  Too plastic, but it kept the kids amused in a tea room in Market Drayton, next to the canal where we used to winter.  It went round at pelmet level and never, ever failed or fell off. Remarkable stuff!

Your diorama idea is what my 1/32nd activities have had to be curtailed to. My plans were too ambitious. Too big by far due to complete lack of experience in the scale, so now it's a country lane crossing some track through the trees and an Airfix Triumph Herald with the bonnet up, a sweet girl's derriere leaning over the wheel and the driver of my wee diesel nearly falling out of the cab "getting a butcher's".  It'll keep me busy for a while amongst the 7mm scale/14mm gauge Canal Wharf and a 5.5mm scale version of Havengore. 

Now an old friend has even got me thinking in terms of 1/12th scale!!

Nil Desperandum!

Cheers, Martin
