hi HI folks, A well as me still doing the GN15 T bag mine ex "wikiwoodtown" im going to do a 1/12th scale dolls house garden railway, dolls scale is 1" inch to the foot where as GN15 scale is 1/2"inch to the foot. The idea for me is for me to operate a small layout and my wife to operate the dolls house, well for the garden railway i managed to get a nice N gauge train set (2mm to the foot) a wild west set called IRON DUKE from a nice lady on fleabay who also lives in seacome (so easy to pick up thanks tina). Now N gauge track works out at about 3 1/2" gauge just right for a garden railway in 1/12th scale. Well i started to look for one, for days i looked and the prices and the range is so vast BUT at last i found one on our local gumtree a perfect house right size, right type, right price (a local family from upton thanks lee) its good living on the wirral ALL local produce so far. The owner of the little house is called CASEY CHUFF as he,s a sort of a cousin of casey jones who was on the television in the 60,s i used to watch as a kid. thumbsup X.

Great thread! I've built and decorated a doll's house (from a kit) and made a flower garden and allotment for it, but the idea of a doll's house having its own model railway is really neat. Have fun! I have some white microfleece fabric I lay out carefully over the roof and put down instead of the gardens, with some twinkly trees, to make it into a large Christmas decoration.
