SOME REALLY OLD 'OO9' STUFF

That's "OO" scale or 1/72rd scale using 9mm wide track gauge

Back in the late 1960's I built these models seen here using 009 log bogies, cardboard and balsawood. I gave them to a good friend, Terry Dunstan, when I changed to 'Hon3' and modelled the "Denver & Rio Grande Western". These models still survive today, which makes them over 40 years old! They may out last me. . .

I scratch built the station building and goods shed above, and the saw mill below. The scenery, figures and buildings in the background were built Terry Dunstan.
