Re: Anyone for T

I remember seeing this too and have always loved the idea of using T as a "miniature" railway. Really nice work

Re: Shelf Layout

Looking great! Are you just using the outputs from the arduino or going via a motor shield? Looks like its running well!

T Gauge 2019 Catalogue

Hi all. Some of you may remember that last year I was in Tokyo for the JAM railway exhibition where Railway Shop had a T gauge exhibit set up. Well I subscribed to their mailing list and have been told of the upcoming show date and more importantly, a link to the 2019 catalogue. https://drive.google...

This site has plenty of architectural models in both 1:400 and 1:500. Take your pick if you want slightly over or undersized!

JAM 2018

Recently I was lucky enough to be out in Japan and by a complete fluke it was over the same weekend as the 19th JAM Convention (think Warley Exhibition, but in Tokyo!). I stumbled across it by complete accident as I was hoping on picking up some Z scale items but the Rokuhan showroom was closed so t...

Re: Ilkley Layout

Fantastic work, it’s coming along nicely! Such a shame the stock points force us into unrealistic track geometry...shame they don’t do fixed crossovers! Still, I don’t think it detracts from the layout at all!

Re: Class 67 arriving at your letterbox

Mine has also arrived and I have to say I’m very impressed! It looks as though the livery is printed directly to the shell as it’s got very crisp lines and really looks the part. I’m not too fussed about the head and tail lights as I always found this a bit of a gimmick, especially considering...

Re: Looking for data

Apologies for reviving an old thread, but I noticed recently while browsing for some N gauge narrow gauge info that David Smith (owner of the website) is back online with modelling pages. He also mentioned on his site that he’d lost a lot of his T Gauge files. So I forwarded him the data and he’...

Re: Duplicator i3 mini

Well first results are promising! The printer was very easy to set up and get level, I then went ahead and printed the test print. Now I appreciate these are tweaked to print as best as possible with the material provided but I’m very happy with the results! I’ve included a few pictures below. A...

Duplicator i3 mini

So yesterday I bit the bullet and ordered a 3D printer. After a bit of research and shopping around I went for a wanhao duplicator i3 mini. There are several other printers that all look suspiciously similar (that’s the Chinese market for you!) so there is reasonably good support available. This w...

Re: Automatic control. Ideas needed!

Got to agree here. I've got myself an arduino and am very very slowly trying to learn to program it to do some very basic automation. The easiest way I can think of is to have it switch power on and off to sections using relays, but this is very rudimentary and there are plenty of commercial options...

Re: The Bridge

Have you seen the article yet Doug? I've subscribed for a month on my ipad and just had a read, overall very positive for the scale and a very brief mention at the end for the bridge! Hopefully will bring the scale a bit more attention!
