T gauge

Postby Blackcloud Railways » Fri Feb 02, 2007 1:36 pm

OK you Gniners, how long before somebody adapts this one to G scale???

http://www.rmweb2.co.uk/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4976

Or http://www.kk-eishindo.co.jp/2007tirasie.html direct to the Japanese site.

G scale model of a G scale model anyone?

Can I coin "G-gee" as the scale/gauge name?

looks interesting, but price will be decider for me. wonder how long befor someone produced alternative bodies in other scales(Steve :?: :twisted: ) sorry only joking Steve.

just checked website, quoting price for set at 5000 yen, whih works out at around 20 UK pounds, can it be that cheap, definitely will keep an eye out. at least weight won't be an issue so postage should be reasonable from Japan

The following was recently posted on the 009 Society Yahoo site.

To whom it may concern,

We really appreciate your concern to T gauge. We exhibited the Toy
Show, the Gift Show, and Spielwarenmesse since last year, and we have
been given many interests from international customers.

Now we are at the final improvement stage. We have tried improvement
several times for your satisfaction. ( e.g. we add the temporary stop
function at switchbacking, AC/DC adapter, etc.)

Completely different from the prototype shown through the
exhibitions, smooth and quiet run has been realized at the latest
version.

As soon as a mass-production sample is completed, we will inform you
the detail. We would like to ask you to wait for a while.

We are pleased to inform you that motion picture has been updated to
our URL.

I was wondering about how T gauge was developing ( I was thinking of another loop for Tetley Grange) so I did a Google search and this topic appeared :!:
Anyway here's one of the UK suppliers

I like the garden railway set at the bottom of the page. I wonder if they'll do a G scale version :D

I did have an idea for using T gauge in G scale, but the exchange rate has put that on hold for the moment, a bit pricey for the limited application I had for it. No, I'm not going to say what I was going to use it for :D

I see a gentleman is hand laying some T track out of .015 music wire soldered to a PC board strip. Says hes working to see if points are possible or even practical. Impressive....

You need to export to Japan then the exchange rate will be in your favour. :wink:

Thats what I have already done. I bought one of the sets when they first came out, and built a 'model railway' in 1/12 scale in converted dolls house conservatory. It's in store at the moment but plan to tidy it up, possibly to sell. The problem is not the T gauge but the por quality and design of the dolls house building. It might have been easier to start from scratch.
If I don't get rid of the T gauge I might build a model of OO gauge in 1/6th scale :lol: or Gn15 8) in 1/6th scale
