Lehman originally started it as K scale, and while Peco in Britain may have used the G for garden, Lehman used the G for gross in Lehman Gross Bahn - LGB. Literally translated - Lehman Big Train.It's neither and it's both.
G is for garten. G is for gross. Für drinnen und draussen.
It must have been prior to 1972. How long has Peco G-45 track been around?Lehman originally started it as K scale, and while Peco in Britain may have used the G for garden, Lehman used the G for gross in Lehman Gross Bahn - LGB. Literally translated - Lehman Big Train.
Now that opens up the question of who's is the biggest, I s'pose
Aww, It even has an example of the correct way of using apostrophes and quotes...At this stage of the game, it's more likely F *** scale
Found the new Ready to play set marked down to $50 after Christmas and converted it to 45mmTechnically, she didn't say they would be "good" memories ...
The plastic track it runs on has a gauge of 2 inches. Seems it would be hard to kit bash.
Gondola = Open Wagon
Another update: Lionel actually refers to the gauge as "Ready to Play" rather than G Gauge. They used to make similar products in G gauge such as the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express shown in this VIDEO. Did a quick search and found one on ebay for $489, so it has passed into the realm of over priced collector items. Last listed in the 2015 Lionel catalog. Lionel's on-line store does not currently list any train sets in G Gauge.
