Re: David K. Smith back online

Looks like my N gauge miniature railway has inspired DKS - including building his own locomotive

Re: David K. Smith back online

As many of us know DKS is seriously ill. He has started to put on line a short message each day really to tell us he is still on this planet. He has finished many of his N gauge projects

Re: Seen Better days

The bus is meant to be a simulator brought in to thrill people by pretending to be a bus going downhill out of control, but as you can see it's closed due to lack of customers. It's a N gauge 1:150 3D model from Outland models based in China and available on Ebay. Apart from the miniature railway al...

Re: N gauge miniature rolling stock

Here's my second type of carriage of which I only have the one. It's made from the JNR12' container wagon set ref.041B. Now I'm sure some people could 3D print this type of carriage body, but my friend is a true scratch build modeller and has removed the containers and weights, plus he has added som...

N gauge miniature rolling stock

These are for my new layout "Seen Better Days" which as N gauge scenery and a miniature railway running around a park, This uses T gauge track and stock and would equate to an 18in gauge miniature railway in full scale. I bought RTR chassis from Tgauge.com and a friend of mine who is an excellent mo...

Couplings

I'd like a simple answer or answers on how to fit couplings and springs into wagons and carriages please, without them jumping everywhere never to be seen again. Just the standard couplings.

Re: Seen Better days

I have been running round the class 67 and 2 carriages without their bodies which will become miniature railway carriages for this N gauge scene in due course. Also a good opportunity to move buildings around to see which I like best

Re: Anyone for T

This layout uses O gauge people and scenery - now working on a similar idea but using T gauge as a miniature railway in a N gauge setting. See "Seen Better Days" under the T gauge layouts on this site. I'm pleased so many people remember this layout and glad I've got it working again

Re: Seen Better days

Having bought more T gauge track this is the third and final track plan for my N gauge miniature railway. It just fits in the space available. The class 67 pulls 3 MK1 coaches around the oval, but struggles with 4 so should pull a couple of miniature railway coaches if I can build them. I'm now goin...

Seen Better days

Text Aug 2020 Seen Better days is hopefully going to be a n gauge miniature railway in a park using T gauge as the miniature railway. Today the track was built on a spare table and my new class 67 locomotive ran to check it out. Although it ran well, it struggled to pull 2 MKI coaches around the sma...
