Gauge unknown

I was given a coach with a gauge which I could not identify… it measured 1″ across the wheel set which at 1/2″ to the foot did not scale into the doors and windows so my only hope of using it was to remove the bogies and fit a pair of Triang Big Big Train coach bogies which proved very simple. It runs very well but is still out of proportion with the locomotive.  SONY DSC

I was given a Playmobil Fairground Wheel which is a lovely toy and just the right size for the Railway. At night it lights up with an array of superbly realistic lights.
