Re: Problem! what to do ? 00 Gauge or N Gauge ?

If the space you have is that small, I would definitley go with N gauge. To be honest, the only thing you may struggle with vision wise is the small scenic details, people, cows etc!
There is plenty of choice in N gauge now aswell, just check out the likes of Hattons website!

Chris, I like the Brit!
You should try the same photo as if the draincocks have been opened, with the steam coming out the front, that could look good!

Re: Update on 4472 'Flying Scotsman'

Tornado would have been a good option due to the recent (well, fairly recent) press coverage, people know what it is, and shows us Brits haven't totally lost all old engineering skills!

Britannia would also be very fitting with the name I agree...

Re: Update on 4472 'Flying Scotsman'

Now that is shifting! Wow!


Back on topic, I hope they have Scotsman running properly soon, it has been dragging on a long time now, then again, better to have it in the workshop now than possibly failing later!

Latest 'toy'

This has been a slight distraction from my N gauge...

Image

Roundhouse George, 16mm scale live steam 8)

Runs like an absolute dream, full R/C (regulator & direction control) butane fired.

Beats N gauge! :(

Re: Fitting together N gauge track

If it is Peco flexi track (streamline), did you file the burr off the bottom of the rail after you cut it? Quite often stops the joiners sliding on in my case!

Re: N gauge 2012 wish list.

I must admit, a DCC ready class 170 with all the bells and whistles would be nice!
A 185 would be a definite purchase from me aswell!

Hi Chris, I can only really echo others comments, I hope your Wife finds another job soon, it is quite tough out there!

By the way the lights in the depot look brilliant, very jealous!

Re: What scale is this train?

Any idea what loco it is supposed to be? To find out the gauge just take a tape measure and find out the distance between the two rails, looks about 3.5inch gauge to me, could be wrong like. As for the boiler I'm not sure, best thing to do is find your nearest model engineering club and ask around t...

They all have to be withdrawn by 2019 though under the Disability Discrimination Act as they don't have access for disabled people. All the Northern 142's I have been on have had a fold up ramp the Guard to put out if needs be, don't know if this conforms to the DDA though... But yes they are prett...
