As I've mentioned before, when I came back into railway modelling some five years ago, I decided 009 was far too small for my fat fingers and failing eyesight, which is why I started modelling in O-16.5 last year.

However, I bought this last week.





I even managed to get the track together without resorting to my magnifying visor, to test it.

Wow Ed, that really is tiny!!!

I can fully realise just how difficult your resistance must have been in buying it, futile :???:

So, are you going to use it to decorate the next family birthday cake, have some forced perspective action at the back of your layout, a Christmas window display (plenty of time), a model railway garden layout on your model railway indoor layout, or something completely different?

Have fun and good luck in finding a decoder to fit!

Best,

Bill :thumbs

That looks great Ed but, if it were mine, and given that my fingers are much, much fatter than yoursd, I'd have to put it back on E-Bay ................................ :oops: :oops:

Way, way too small for me.

I'd hate to think of you straining your eyes, send it to me and save yourself the trouble......

Hi Ed,

Bit of modification, you have an estate locomotive running down to the On30 lines. In this case you would be On18ish.

One of the reasons I bought it Peter, just to see how small it really is and it's not as bad as I thought.

I'd like to oblige Doug but it's the wrong scale for you, 3.5mm to the foot, not 4mm :mutley



Ed

O9 over here Nigel, but I'm interested in what I can fit in a small space in 3.5mm scale.

An estate railway in 7mm would still need a fair amount of space for any buildings.
