      But there is another point: 9mm modellers may also be a source of materials, parts, figures, etc from their market. And we can use that.

      Hi Ron,

      I've always found it a bit strange that more people haven't modelled to that scale and gauge combination in Australia given the amount of 3'6" we had.

      Was well aware it was a predominantly (totally ?) New Zealand modelling group, but also figured they did have some 2' and other narrow gauge lines there so there might be some NG modellers in it.
