T gauge in larger layouts.

At the Gcr show today, I spotted a very nice usage of T gauge in an O gauge layout:

What a nicely worked out use for a HST set!

In case its not too clear to see what has been done, the roof of a Mk3 carriage has been cut out to allow figures of seated children to be glued in so they look as if they're sitting on seats inside the carriage.

Th track is a simple oval running around the outside of a park and play area.

Always considered using O for T gauge...scales out to roughly 5 inch gauge! Not sure I'd have the guts to cut a hole in the roof of an HST!
Loving the idea and the extra exposure for T!

To put the use of T in perspective in this layout, here's three general shots of areas of the layout....which attracted a lot of the public:
