Re: Would it be possible to have a new range of chassis?

Thank you so much much for those very encouraging and very kind words mattinair. Indeed small micro belts aren't out of reach. They have been used in watches and so were micro gears.

Cheers!

Re: Would it be possible to have a new range of chassis?

I'm sorry, I know what T gauge is. They are just ideas and not something that I've shoved money out for, why do you think I made 2? The belt may not be useful for T gauge, but it's a possibility for narrow gauge trains using T gauge track.

Cheers,
JBModels.

Re: Would it be possible to have a new range of chassis?

Further along in what I am trying to visualize and conceptualize for a set of T gauge chassis. My initial concepts for the custom BO-BO, CO-CO and Offset CO-CO drive systems. Featured below is a CO-CO variant. I've thought of 2 mechanisms, one is a belt drive and another is a gear drive (originally...

Re: Would it be possible to have a new range of chassis?

I was really impressed by Connor's attempt at a steam loco. I cannot wait till he makes progress on that. I have managed to get in touch with him and hope to have some nice drive systems developed.

Cheers!

Would it be possible to have a new range of chassis?

Hi, After reading through Connor's topic regarding the SD70 model, I must admit I was blown away. He seems to have literally designed exactly what I had in mind and needed i.e. a CO-CO chassis that can fit into a narrow body diesel. Most of the models that I plan on making are CO-CO locos and are d...

Re: UK Stock?

Hi dkightley, Sorry, nothing physical as yet as I'm mostly caught up with college and dad has been busy back home. Not much progress since he is the sole source for any money transactions. Too small to have a credit card (also the reason why I am doing it free, it's our hobby as well). I am startin...

Re: UK Stock?

Hi dkightley, I haven't designed any T gauge items yet, as I said in my introductory post I am brand new. But I sincerely hope to make a future in making T gauge stock. I have however designed quite a bit of stuff in other scales. I've attached images below. Cheers! JBModels PS: I hope ya'll don't ...

Re: Newbie here and a CO-CO chassis?

For the narrow hood diesels I think that you may be out of luck as regards fitting them over the current chassis. There has been a narrow hood diesel body produced in the past (GP7/GP9?) but that was made over width to fit the avaialable chassis. Another member of the forum was looking at producing...

Re: Newbie here and a CO-CO chassis?

I'm not sure how to tell the difference between the generations, as for the most part it's just a new gen motor that's added. The original JR 103 4 car sets are 1st gen and very problematic. Most sets after perform a lot better. Here is a picture from the tgauge.com Facebook page (well worth a look...

Hello, I found someone who could make the wheels for me really cheap and it works great! These are some of the pictures I had been working on.

Re: Newbie here and a CO-CO chassis?

there was a picture of a co-co chassis on facebook a while back... it looked like it was a regular chassis with an extra wheel bolted on the end of each bogie... it's possible to extend chassis by 3d printing a replacement part for the bit the non driving bogie sits on so it doesn't really matter w...

Re: Newbie here and a CO-CO chassis?

Firstly, welcome to the forum and the world of T! The latest power units with the PWM controllers give excellent slow speed running. There is a co-co chassis in development. In the past people used stick on frames to simulate this (see some products on the tgauge.com website) but this should be a t...

Newbie here and a CO-CO chassis?

Hey guys, I'm basically a new comer to T gauge. I do have a small collection of OO scale stuff, but T is something brand new. I've known about T gauge for more than a year now. My friend in Bangalore is actually a distributor of T gauge stuff via trainaidsa.in so that's how I came to know about T ga...
