Re: truck fell off loco

If it's what has happened to me a few times you need to spring into action. On each side of the power bogie is a small spring which holds the bogie in place. Spares are available at Tgauge.com. They can be devilishly difficult to fit but there is advice on the Tgauge.com website. Good luck!

Re: Pennsylvania 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive.

Great stuff Joe, great stuff! I really didn't think it possible in this scale. Very impressive.

Re: Union Pacific train

Thanks. The carriages look much more like the real thing with people in the windows. I think we're all experimenting with this scale and it's good to know what doesn't work as much as what does.

Really like the windows with people and partly lowered blinds. How did you do the people especially?

Re: What do you want to see in 2017 for T gauge??

I seem to be in agreement with the above - 3 axle power bogies, better points and a wider choice of manufacturer. And to be greedy, 'transfers' of the logos of all the TOCs past and present in Britain.

Windows

G'day folks, I bought and painted a Class 156 DMU from Shapeways which was fine except that it had gaping holes for windows. At first that didn't bother me but when I painted 80 gsm paper grey and glued it inside the coach bodies they looked much better. Then I also painted onto the windows modeller...

Scratch built buildings

G'day folks, I not only get pleasure out of watching trains go around and of operating a layout, I also increasingly get pleasure out of building a layout. While 3D printing is good for T scale, I've tried experimenting with scratchbuilding a couple of freelance buildings, largely in cardboard . Pho...

Re: The Bridges at Saltash

And there's also the Southern line that goes under the main bridges and alongside the river that would add further interest - and complication. Doug?

Well done Doug, richly deserved. Hopefully T gauge will get more coverage in the model railway magazines now. Er, so what is your next layout?

Re: Kupzinger's Nickel Silver

They're brilliant Friederich! The only issue with the Class 37s is that there are no 6-wheel bogies available, but they will, hopefully, come in time. Are you going to offer these models commercially?

Re: Anybody in????

I read the conversations on the site, most of which I find interesting and useful, but I don't often have anything useful to add. Like others, my time for modelling is limited and in recent months I suspect I've just done what others have already done, namely paint a BR Warship, a Class 25 and a Cla...

Re: The Bridge

Doug,
Was very impressed with The Bridge at the GCR event. Extraordinary work. Well done. Emphasises that T Gauge allows or requires the railway to be modelled in its environment.

Re: Brainstorming for a new exhibition layout

A navigation would add interest. The Wey Navigation also passes under the south western mainline near Byfleet & New Haw, another possibility.
