Seen Better days

Post by westernsultan »

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 small radius curves. By contrast my garden railway locomotive seems to have more power but constantly uncoupled.
I’m going to have to have a rethink and probably will need to get rid of the long spur siding, so that I can increase the track radius – not a good start.

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 going to have to change the plans for the original N gauge scenery I had in mind.

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.

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
