Hi all,
Now that Pen Y Bont is virtualy finished I'm seriously thinking of going "narrow gauge"
I'm thinking 0:16.5 scale, (7mm scale stock on 16.5mm gauge track)
I am looking for help and advice from some of you narrow gaugers out there.
Any information, track plans, loco drawings or web links would be very much appreciated.
I must again state that this is all VERY MUCH in the thinking about it stage and nothing definite has been planned yet.
Thanks in advance
frank

Frank

lovely idea for a layout

I assume you are loking at one of the Welsh narrow gauge ones?

I am doing an 009 section on my home layout and have looked around and there is info out there but it not as widespread as standard gauge stuff

Even finding things like standards are not easily available i.e platform heights tunnel heights and other dimentions i still have not find 009 dimentions.

there is a society for 7mm http://www.7mmnga.org.uk/

i looked at the 009 version of the above but at this stage the £30 subscription stopped me at the moment.

Most stock is kit built there is very little RTR

But it is a nice section of the hobby that is gaining more popularity

cheers Brian

Frank, I think 0n30 is the same - well close 6.35mm/ ft on 16.5mm track which is what Bob got for his Chriise present.

Of course the Cambrian and the GW had NG lines. I'm tempted by something W&L-like myself.

Good job I don't think too often :lol:

Oh dear Frank, I remember thinking about this hobby and look what that has got me into, don't think just do it, and then ask questions :roll:
