Re: N gauge miniature rolling stock

Malcolm Hall has built me another N gauge miniature railway carriage on a T gauge chassis, this time in maroon and using a different type of glue compared to the yellow ones which are showing signs of bowing at the ends

Re: Seen Better days

Today with the easing of lockdown my N Gauge miniature railway "Seen Better Days" left home for the first time, not to attend an exhibition but to have a plastic lid made for it. At the same time we tried how easy it would be to load into the car and did the trip deliberately over sleeping policeman...

Re: Seen Better days

American diesel has arrived - we had to cancel our Xmas running event due to Covid 19 restrictions. The engine was tested today and will indefinitely be staying with us and "Anyone for T". We have no dates for when the miniature railway will run again next but 2 more bespoke carriages are being prod...

Re: Seen Better days

Here's a picture of the completed layout with no where to go. An American outline locomotive is expected to operate on the line at Xmas, I understand it's already nearby. My friend is going to build 2 more bespoke N gauge miniature railways carriages but we are not expecting them to arrive until nex...

Re: Seen Better days

That's the layout finished - just need to put some plastic side panels to stop fingers encroaching onto the layout. I've just written an article about the layout for the N Gauge Society which I hope the journal editor will use next year thanks for the interest and stay safe

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...

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: Seen Better days

So here we are at the start of September with most of the scenery in place and chassis sent to a friend to see if he can build me some miniature railway carriages.
