1:32 scale Rye & Camber 2-4-0T "Camber" For Sale
- This is a 'Public Service' announcement and I have absolutely no
financial interest in its outcome (although I do have to admit that I
covet the model, which is sadly beyond my present financial means :-(
Caboose Hobbies of Denver, Colorado, USA, are offering for sale (on
consignment) a beautiful scratchbuilt brass 1:32 scale model to run on
16.5 mm gauge ('HO'/'OO') track of Rye & Camber
Tramway (England) Bagnall 2-4-0T locomotive "Camber". The model was
built for American collector Mark Greybill (an associate of Caboose
Hobbies) built by Paul Berntsen of New Zealand, who will be well
familiar to readers of Roy Link's 'Narrow Gauge & Industrial Railway
Modelling Review' and Wild Swan's 'Model Railway Journal'.
I can speak to the quality of the model, as I am now the lucky owner of
an identical sister locomotive, built at the same time for that well
known FS32NG 'provocateur' Ray Lantz (he of Southwold empire building
fame :-) Mine has subsequently been reconfigured to run on On3 ( 3/4"
or 19.05mm) gauge track.
