Re: 4012 Big Boy

Good luck with this Joe. It would be great to see a T gauge Big Boy. There is someone on the T gauge Facebook page who has done the outside wheel motion for a Big Boy. Don't know what has happened about that, it's sometime since I looked at it, and this forum actually.

Re: Model Rail Scotland 2017

Excellent, well done Doug, you have put T gauge on the modelling map. What a shame Storm Doris got in the way. Would be great if you could find a link. I'll have a look on the show's site. Many modellers don't even know T gauge exists and a new forum I have joined recently has a board for all the ga...

Re: Crane Tower

'Fiddly' has got to be the most used word in T gauge :)

Only 2 hours? It depends what you started out with. Was it a kit or did you produce it yourself? Is it a 3D print job, and did you do the drawings? It's amazing to get that accuracy at such a scale. Well done.

Re: Anybody in????

Hello T gauge, I'm still in, I haven't given up on my project to use T gauge to represent 5 inch gauge within O gauge, and to convert it to battery powered radio control, it's just that I've got too many standard gauge O gauge projects that have come up. Carry on the good work T gaugers.

Re: Warley MRC Show 2016 - NEC, Birmingham

I went to the show on the Saturday Doug and saw The Bridge, wow, such a lot of work gone into that. Great to see it for real. Kept on meaning to introduce myself but everytime I turned up there there were loads of people around and talking to you. What happened to the T Gauge folk from Scotland? Dis...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Thanks very much for the link Siegfried. My browser won't show the photos, don't know why. I'm hoping to see some of this tiny gear stuff at a show shortly here in the UK called the Warley Show. Very interesting what you are doing. I presume the Shicoh motor and gearbox is too awkward to alter to fi...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Gosh, a worm that small would come in handy for me. Where did you get it from? Can you get gears that small aswell from the same place? I'd love to be able to get the gears that make up a T gauge motor system separate rather than buy a system and take it apart.

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

I see; it's the motor out of the servo. Is that a motor and gearbox and did it have the worm already on it?

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Oh yes, this looks fascinating. Keep an eye on this one. I'm intrigued by that thin motor with the worm screw. Never seen one of those before. Where does that come from?

Re: Using T Gauge within O Gauge

Oh, so that's your layout. That would make a nice little addition to a 1:32 scale layout. It may sound out of place, but I have seen people do it to their passenger carriages (and freight wagons) to provide extra power on actual miniature railway. That's interesting. The only wagon I want to be perm...

Re: Using T Gauge within O Gauge

Ah yes, very good point Ozrail. I had been wondered about that at the back of my mind, trying to ignore it, hoping it would go away, but perhaps I had better bring it to the front of my mind. If it does prove too much for it I'll have to get a plastic driver and make room for another motor in the dr...

Re: Using T Gauge within O Gauge

The reed switch switches it all on, connects it all to the battery. Notice the tiny little magnet 3mm dia to switch it on, that won't look too odd stuck to the side of the driver's trolley. It's the smallest switch I know of that provides the least contact with the model. I don't like clunky switche...

Re: Using T Gauge within O Gauge

Well, reckon I've got all the equipment now. The receiver's there (green with arial), 3 volt lithium coin cell sitting on top of it, and on top of that a little motor / gear I want to turn the driver's head. Then there's the read switch and the tiny little magnet to switch it on. In turning the driv...

Re: Wireless Control for T Gauge

Great to see you're getting around to having a go at this Kupzinger. I think I see what you've done but I'm not electronic minded enough to understand why it did not work. With the radio receiver I will buy for my project the Electronic Speed Control (ESC) is incorporated inside the receiver. Is it ...

Re: Kupzinger's Nickel Silver

Oh that's brilliant Kupzinger. I also like the fact that you've shown it starting from stop. I don't like videos that just show them going, no starts or stops. That doesn't really show the quality of the model and it's not as interesting to watch. Such a realistic start at such a small scale is amaz...

Oh I love your nickel silver stuff Kupzinger and I'm not surprised you can't wait to show your fantastic paint job. To achieve that at T gauge is amazing. Close up photos are usually a killer for small scale stuff, even in O gauge, showing up all the faults. With your T gauge looking this good in cl...

Oh that's excellent Kupzinger. Yes, I expect T gauge will need the coach behind :) Last night I met someone who has fitted some DT (Deltang) radio equipment into N gauge and saw and had a go with it, so I've found someone local I can discuss with face-to-face this micro equipment, always an advantag...

Wow, that's interesting Doug. Yes, that's right it is Andy now. Didn't realise the firm had been going that long, great to know. Radio control equipment is slowly crawling its way from the gigantic garden railway scene into the 21st century world of the micro. Last weekend was O gauge's biggest even...
