    So can you tell us a bit more about your "vision"?
     
    For example mainline standard gauge trains? Narrow gauge trains? Modern cars, old cars?
     
    In my case I model the transition era (ending of steam, early diesels) mainline Santa Fe. So most of m...  more

    Hi Matt,

    Matt,
    So are you making it run on 45mm track or larger 1:20.3 standard gauge track?
    D&RGW 44 ton switcher bash

    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.
     
    Cheers,
