High, just bought 12 yards of peco 12mm 75 track to increase my TT layout. This is HOM. My lady wife would like a narrow gauge line instead, so we looked at availability.  My understanding was that Egger Bahn, was HOe, but many for sale on Ebay, say HOe/m. Do they adjust or what.. If not, what brand  will run on HOm thanks. john

Hi John

I find these gauges/scales very confusing, but the wiki is quite good...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rail_transport_modelling_scales

I may be wrong (often am) but I think HOe is 9mm (N gauge) Track and HOm is a European scale/gauge using 12mm (TT) track.

HOe is therefore similar to UK 009.

Egger Bahn states they are HOn30 (whatever that is) and use 9mm track :???:

Had a quick search on HOm and BEMO seem to be one make.

Don't look particularly cheap though.

hi, ED, thanks. Found Bemo, and needed a chair, as not cheap. Egger Bahn on ebay france, where i live, shows  HOe, or HOm, so i wondered whether they adjusted, As i have all these gauges, will buy a cheap Egger and have a look. Also, other continental TT makes about. Got the track for a steal. as guy mistakenly bought it for 00. john

ED, It appears i have choice of Bemo, or tillig, neither of which are cheap. As you indicated, Egger Bahn, n gauge, which is a pity, as much much cheaper. Will lay the track and run my existing TT triang trains, pro tem, whilst keeping an eye on ebay france. john
