In parallel of the Woolacombe bay (at 1/13 scale), I'm doing with 2 friends of my club a gn15 layout. I convert 2 members of my club to gn15 (Gn15 is 15" gauge rail at 1/24 scale on 16.5 mm rail).

This is the true site in narrow gauge located in the south of France.



The name is "Moules de chez Sébastien " or sebastien's mussels for the MOMING 2013 challenge in sedan (France).

We share the job : Erwan and Jean-paul build the layout and me I work on the rolling stocks and the weathering.

Erwan find the idea of mussel business in the French Mediterranean sea in the "pond of Thau", in reality it's a big salt lake.

This is our interpretation.









We have made some progress. We need to install now the backdrop and made the sea with resin.

The layout measures 80 cm by 30 cm (it's a micro layout).

The overall view



The rolling stocks from peper 7 fit with kadee couplers (efficient but not design and not very elegant to this kind of wagons)









The crane from erwan



The logo designs by Erwan

With the Kadees it's just a pity they stick out so far - if the coupler boxes could be fitted further in under the ends they'd be fine.

The weathering effects that can be done in these larger scales are fantastic!

In the past for the rolling stock I had pin and link (beautiful not not reliable). If I put the kadee inside the frame of the wagon I must remove the additional weight !

We have nearly finish the layout at 90 %.



The first loco is a ge44 T from Bachmann and the other one is base on a roco chassis.


We will display the it for the first time at Sedan (in France) in October.
