Narrow Gauge North


Fairfield Log Loading Experience

A 009 layout by Derek Naylor
Scale 009 (4mm/1ft)
Gauge 9mm
The model is intended to be a fun thing to operate. If allowed by the exhibition organisers I will be happy for visitors to have a go at operating it. The model is scratch built. The log wagons are kit built. The loco has a scratch built body on a Kato chassis. The tractor is a is a die cast model and the logs 1/2" balsawood dowel. Power is just two AA batteries which power the crane and the loco.

It is constructed to take apart and fit into a box 20" x 11" x 9". This box is made from the thick corrugated cardboard used for banana boxes. It is Surprisingly light weight and strong. It fits into a shopping trolley canvas bag which allows it to be taken on public transport.
