I was sent these pictures by my good friend, Jack Trollope, of Model Trains International magazine who saw the T gauge layout at the Glasgow Model railway exhibition.
Enjoy and be amazed...







Suddenly my layout is very ordinary....

Good grief! Where have these guys been? They' sure aren't on the forum... unless they've been keeping this a secret.

And how on earth did they get all of that flex?!

Please pass along our collective thanks to Jack!

Gives a whole new meaning to "scenery to train ratio," doesn't it?

sure does. that is another big advantage of the scale, a very small intermate layout, or a massive focus on the surround landscape with a rail line running through it, covering acres. Smile

For information, the curved viaduct is a model of Glenfinnan viaduct in Scotland, made out of concrete.

We will be incorporating T gauge into the back scenery of our 2mm Scale layout 'Copenhagen Fields' in the near future. The ominal scale at the back is 1:250, but in the vicinity of the backscen 1: 450 can easily be accomodated.

I recognised Glenfinnan viaduct immediately. It's more than slightly famous as far as railway viaducts go. Featured in a few movies too - including Harry Potter.

I'm sure I'm not the only one here to have thought about building a large T scale layout. But this is the first actual one I'm aware of. Shows what can be done with flex track. One wonders how they managed to get so much of it. Oh well, it shouldn't be much longer for the rest of us. I have one length and a second one is coming with the mountain train. Just checked the tracking details of this and it looks like it will arrive tomorrow - ahead of the stock which arrived in Melbourne on Monday. Rolling Eyes


EDIT: Ha! That viaduct turns up in the most unexpected places at times.

You're right. I have been toying with the idea of doing a "door layout" for some time in N scale, and lately I've thought of perhaps switching the plan to T. Presently it's just a mind exercise.

Tim:
Thanks for the link to Copenhagen Fields.
I remember reading about it several years ago in an early edition of Model Railway Journal.
It still looks amazing

Crikey, T Gauge making its move onto Copenhagen fields Shocked Very Happy I am really looking forward to seeing what you guys create for that. I'm pretty sure class 103 EMUs didn't make their way to North London Wink

That model of Glenfinnan is extremely impressive, and certainly shows T Gauge in a postive light. I wonder why it has had such a low profile in this country, I thought that would have been all over the modelling press?

...or perhaps it was and I'm just not very observant....

Thanks for the good words about our T-Shaped layout at the Glasgow show Very Happy and Thanks to Jack for putting these pictures up here...it's in it's infancy at the moment, so hopefully we can develop it a bit more before we next show it at Alexandra Palace, end of March.

Welcome Alan:
The first and most obvious questions are what is the size of the layout and what sort of construction did you use for the baseboard? Most of use here have much smaller layouts than this and we use materials like foam, foamcore board and in my case a 3' x 2' cork faced notice baord.
Well its the obvious question to me. I'm sure some others have more obvious questions

Ian
