T Gauge based Zm Layout

Postby Nutter » Sun May 03, 2015 7:43 pm

This is the thread for my new layout.
Baseboard area will be 18"x24". The track is all on a single level, comprising of an irregular oval with a passing siding at the single station.
This will be raised from the lower level to allow for a mini viaduct with a road dropping down under the viaduct from the village on the track level.
There will be a lot of conifers ( I have around 500 that were originally on a std Z gauge layout) and a small open backed.tunnel in one corner.
No pictures will be posted until I have constructed the baseboard.

On further investigation the tunnel will not happen, a single sided cutting is more likely.
The height difference between the lower part and the track bed with be about an inch.

I'm so naive. Is this a 1/220 scale model of a narrow gauge train running on t(3mm) gauge track(?)...I'm fascinated...Also love the picnic table etc.

Z on T...Wow!...Did you have to build or customize your own models or is there some where to purchase these things already made?

Bodies purchased from Shapeways.
Chassis either standard T gauge or wheel sets from TGauge.com.
All my other stuff is from regular Z gauge sources or in the case of buildings /structures either scratch built, regular kits or even 6mm war-game stuff.

Wood now purchased for the rest of the baseboard.
Building it will take a while as woodwork is not my strongest ability, unless to involves 6" nails - not really practical if you need something that needs to look reasonable.
