    My Name is Danielle and I am from Switzerland. I am a big fan of narrow gauge Garrats from Southafrica. I had the pleasure to ride a train with the swiss NGG13 Garratt then owned by the Schinznacher Baumschulbahn. I dream to have a model of this beauty! So I decided to build one for myself. Actually I am gathering all kind of informations and pictures.
    My main hobby is scatchbuilding model boats. I've done a 1/32 FV Cornelia Marie from the tv serie and a italian trawler in 1/24 scale (made that for a friend in Italy who did not want it in the end). Actually I am building a 1/10 scale trawler from brittany.
    I hope to learn a lot reading the forum.
