Hi Guys


It occurred to me that the HO track I'm using for On30 is the same gauge for Gn15,

so it would be fun to try a little rubber gaugin'.


Here's my Gn15 "Winky":





More to come...

Nice rustic charm there!

Love the tractor seat.


I think the roof really looks great,

rusting out with shiny metal edges.


Yepers!

I love how utilitarian these gauges are.


Bump On30 up, and it's Gn15. 

How cool. 


The roof on this thing is tops! 

Great weathering all around.

Hi,

Here's another "Winky", built by a friend of mine.

He preferred an "open air" solution.

Hi Brian,

I love that little critter.

It really has bags of character.

Nicely weathered too.

Here's my Gn15 conversion of a Bachmann Davenport:





Still a bit more to come.

Two Gn15 flat cars from Schomberg Scale Models,

with a "honey pot" load on the left, and an oil tank on the right.





Now it's time to get some track down!

Thanks, Eddie!

I appreciate your comments.


I haven't done very much with Gn15 lately,

still rubber gaugin' with N and On30/18


Lots to do and lots of fun!
