Thank you for starting this up David;
It will be advantageous to have all T gauge related material in one place rather than having to flit around the other forums getting information and developments.

Glad to see more T gauge out there. Thank you for creating the forum David. I look forward to seeing others modeling efforts and hope to do some of my own soon.

Regards,
Dan MacKellar

Hi all,

Very interested in this 'curiously small' gauge and the prospect of a new challenge is enticing.

At the very least, it should help my nscale modeling!

UPDATE*
My order has been placed and I should be receiving my Osaka, Yamanote sets and 132r track in a week or so. Really hoping to take a serious run at this.

Hi Guys, as you probably know, I am a T Gauge foamer too! I was an N Scaler, because I though N was small.

Then I found American Z Scale, and switched. About 2 years ago I heard about T, and have been impatiently waiting.

Now it's just coming out, and so far, so good. Thanks David for creating a forum for T, it's just what T needs. Just what WE need! Smile

Hi guys.

Ian (Trainspotter-USA) pointed me in the direction of this forum. I mainly model in 'N', british outline but hte appeal of 'T' was far to strong for me!

I've got a couple of 4 car sets on ordfer and one each of the loops of track to evaluate where to go with these little (very little!) trains. I hope to have a crack at producing some british outline multiple units from these, after all it'd get a bit boring if every 'T' layout featured nothing but series 103 units.

Welcome!
Actually, hearing these guys talk I don't think anyones layout will feature 103 units and if a Budd RDC appeared before a Skinkansen neither would mine

I'm the first to admit that I know absolutely nothing about US outline operations, so a quick google of 'Budd RDC' has left me wasting the last 20 minutes or so pouring over prototype information. What a fantastic prototype!

Anyway... I eagerly await my order freom Plaza Japan. Cool

RDC's are awesome little cars, and very popular over here. When I get my 103's, they very well may become Canadian proto RDC's.

Budd's update of the RDC concept, the SPV-2000 of around 1980, is also an interesting subject. Kind of an RDC of the "Amfleet" generation.

Welcome new members! I have to say I didn't expect this kind of turnout when I launched this forum (although I was hopeful). It's exciting to see so much interest in something so esoteric.

Hi There,

I have only just stumbled across this forum via RMWeb. I have recently managed to get hold of a circuit of track and one of the class 103 EMUs from PlazaJapan, and this looks to have a lot of potential. A couple of us are considering a layout of some description, however I'm not sure whetehr or not points are being planned - of (having looked at the track) even possible Sad .

Being a new gauge with at present few modellers, I think this forum is a great idea to share experiences and promote T Gauge.

Welcome, Claude!

Points are not only planned, but being developed:



No idea when they'll be available, but I think it's encouraging to see them working on things nonetheless.
