    Contemplating a switch in scale
    Hate to bring this up again   , but I have had a change in plan. After I did more extensive looking into 1:24 scale, I found there was a lack of more modern narrow gauge equipment (not that narrow gauge equipment was usually new). While the 1880...  more
    D&RGW 44 ton switcher bash
    Hi Craig,
    It is made for 45 mm track. It's a 1:29 scale model. My next step was to re-attach the trucks and spike a third rail to a piece of track to figure out centerline for the narrow gauge coupler:

    D&RGW 44 ton switcher bash
    Hi Craig,
    The prototype is standard gauge. My model, like the prototype, will be equipped with dual gauge couplers which enable it to switch standard gauge and narrow gauge equipment.

    Is the prototype a 3' or 4' 8.5" gauge? 
    Interesting that a center cab in "standard gauge" (1\29) could be used to model a center cab in "narrow gauge" (1/20.3) without too many modifications.
    Re-scaling a Dalton 2-8-0
    I picked up this Delton 2-8-0 Consolidation for a very good price at a train show.  I model an early steam (1880's) narrow gauge railroad in 1/20.3 scale.  This locomotive has the correct diamond smoke stake and kerosene head lamp to match all o...  more
    looking for ideas for a doodlebug bash
     So I have an aristocraft heavyweight doodlebug I picked up last year at a g scale show. though I am more narrow gauge, I couldn't pass on the price. I want to do a lot of modification so it doesn't look like every other one out there, and also to gi...  more

    Joe, in your pic they compare pears and apples.
    the left loco (the "G") is narrow gauge (2m) while the other five are standard gauge.

    standard gauge in 1:22.5 should be roughly a bit over 2 1/2" (64mm)

    Steam in Britian
    I'm not sure how to take this post, TBH.  Is it a dig at the way that the Brexit process is foundering?  A sly dig at the vagaries of running steam traction in an allegedly modern infrastructure?  O...  more

    Wow, those wood hoppers are quite small! But nice
    Yes they are. As an 1800's narrow gauge prototype car it was very small. I can get away with it because my railroad is an operating museum line of both CO and PA narrow ga...  more
