You can see that the body mounted couplers,

would make small radius curves difficult  to navigate.

For my little steamers,
I like to use plastic plumbing fittings for domes and boiler parts,
from the plumbing department at Home Depot and Lowe's. 

Details come from 'Ozark Miniatures' and 'Trackside Details'. 

Regards, Dave L.

Passenger car brings to mind the open-sided trolleys,

which used to run in good weather.

Back when I was modeling large scale trolleys I had a few of the "Brezzers",

and have ridden in a few at trolley museums.

Hi,

I once created this Gn15/Hn18 summer coach for Toeffelholm,

from laser cut wood, with an Rowland Emett style inspired design.

Part of the fun of Gn15,

is the making, modifying, and placement. of figures for use on the layout. 


Here are a few of mine.

We have mentioned that Gn15 layouts can be small or large. 

A friend, Bob R., has given me permission to share his photos, of a small layout he built.
