Re: Rhaetian Railway (Rhatische Bahn) in T-gauge? help 4 new

For anyone else who may be interested, here's some T gauge points that Paul cut down for his Orbost layout. https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1.0-9/190267_10150104332887286_7851632_n.jpg https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1.0-9/190433_10150104331472286_5246...

Re: Rhaetian Railway (Rhatische Bahn) in T-gauge? help 4 new

http://www.TGuage.com will probably be the next best option. Alan does seem to have almost everything in stock....but it seems ironic buying from somewhere half way round the world....when the goods have already been shipped almost as far already! It's actually quite common, although I agree it doe...

Re: Early days in T1 ! 1mm gauge T scale

And speaking of Taiwan. With only bogie mechs so far available, perhaps we need to think about Shays and similar locomotives. ;) DSCF3706XXR.jpg A couple of Alishan Forestry Railway Shays in Chiayi, Taiwan. 24 Feb 2013. Hmmm! I'm now beginning to consider the possibilities of modelling this line in ...

Re: Early days in T1 ! 1mm gauge T scale

Wow! I hadn't noticed this earlier. As if 3mm gauge wasn't enough of a challenge. :shock: Funnily enough, I'd visited that same site on the human powered railway before. I also took a photo of a similar vehicle in the Postal Museum in Taipei in 2005 [see below] PICT2130r.jpg PICT2131r.jpg I gather t...

Re: Block control test

The original idea was that the N represented 7¼" gauge and the Z represented 5" gauge, although I knew at the time that they were both overscale for that. I originally wanted to have dual gauge track, since few miniature railways actually have separate 7¼ and 5" gauge lines. But the layout was bui...

Re: Block control test

I like the miniature railway idea. I've been wanting to do the same, adding an elevated track to my existing O scale miniature railway. No doubt I'd have done it by now if the layout were not in long-term storage. http://www.gunzelgallery.hobbiesplus.com.au/Rail0125.JPG The photo above shows N and Z...
