I can see the appeal of HOe/009 as you get N gauge type space saving combined with HO type scenery and scale and the two are easily combined.

As an aside there was one N gauge exhibition layout at the Warley show that had a scale length of 7.4 miles (12km)!

It had two return loops at each end.

Its owners claimed that this was the longest scale layout at the show by miles!

Happy modelling

I do concede the point on the position of the cylinders but the model is definitely based on the Tasmanian K1 which was transferred to the Festioniog Railway in Wales. It could be that the only way to produce it given the method of locating the body to drive units was to indeed place the cylinders this way around.

No matter Doug is very aware of the level of interest that was shown in this little loco and Doug admitted to me that he must be loco to pay so much for a small loco!


I actually think Doug got a bit of a bargain and I was in two minds whether to sell it as I did fancy keeping it for myself!

I'll buy it back any time Doug if you want to sell it back to me!


Happy modelling
