Re: Kupzinger's Nickel Silver

These are truly superb! Did you hand make the decals too or just scale down and edit photos found online? Plenty of scope for more liveries! I think the 156 has operated over most parts of the UK rail network!

Re: Lettering on Engines/Rolling stock

Electra do a range for T gauge, but I think Adam (the man behind the company!) was in a nasty accident so hasn't been working for a few weeks. That may be the reason for no response! In the past he has taken requests! For me personally, I'm not a fan of the all over vinyl decal as it looks a bit shi...

Re: Using T Gauge within O Gauge

I would be wary, as the commercial controllers run off of 3xAA batteries or a low voltage transformer. I don't know what the current output of the T gauge controller is but I suspect its lower than the gaugemaster and that is going to be the issue. I don't have my stuff to hand but I'm sure someone ...

Re: Wireless Control for T Gauge

I don't see why this couldn't work! Especially if you're going to be modelling narrow gauge. The larger bodies will give ample space. Looking at the dimensions in the other thread, 9.3x9.9x2.3mm won't fit in a standard gauge bodyshell. The interior space is probably about 5 or 6mm maximum. The small...

Re: Using T Gauge within O Gauge

I'll be following this with interest and I love the idea of using T for narrow gauge but have never gotten around to it myself! Best of luck with it!

Re: Class 158 DMU Class

Hi Graham

How are the units? I saw on another thread that you've painted them up! Any feedback or anything with the design that could be changed or tweaked?

Would be great to see some pictures too!

Re: Anybody in????

Another one full of excuses here...

Just moved into a new flat so a lot of expense and lack of time has limited time for any hobby! Hopefully I'll be able to dive back into it soon!

Although I am enjoying following the progress of everyone else on here!

Re: Class 158 DMU Class

Hope you like them! From memory I designed them to fit on the 23m chassis, but with the narrow body shape I think I had to make some compromises so a chassis could fit. Hopefully it'll all work out okay!

Re: Class 158 DMU Class

Hi Graham, Here is a link to the product: https://www.shapeways.com/product/4BLMRK5J2/t-gauge-class-158 You can see everything else in my shop there too (none of which is yet available). The only reason i've not made it available beforehand is I don't have any motor units the correct size to do a te...

Re: Class 158 DMU Class

Hello! I have a 158 all drawn up and on shapeways, however I've not made it available because I don't have a chassis to test it on. I'm more than happy to release it if you want to order one to see?

Re: New products for the Talking T Gauge shop???

I can't remember if it's been suggested before but how about a printing service? I like designing my own bits and bobs but hate waiting for shapeways. How about publishing a set of tolerances and then for a fee and the model made available to all in the shop, and in return you have a model printed l...

Re: New products for the Talking T Gauge shop???

Make sure you place them as close as you can behind other cars, maybe swerving across a roundabout and jumping traffic lights....
(All in jest of course if there are any white van drivers here...)

Seriously impressive stuff. Unfortunately I'm working the entire weekend or I'd have been there just to see it in the flesh! (and play trains)
All the best for the weekend, I hope it goes well!

Re: T Gauge.com Brass Signal Box

I've not seen anyone try it yet apart from Alan at Tgauge.com. I can't do brass kits in larger scales so I will be of no help, but good luck with it!

If it's the old controller I'd make an offer. No way he'll shift it otherwise! What is there to lose?

Re: New T Gauge Layout No Name Yet

So I need to think in metric to get an idea for the space (38x86cm if anyone else is the same). I'd say that's plenty of space depending on what you want! If (for example) you wanted a 4 track station for full lenth HST's I'd say you need a bit more, but for trains in scenery or a town station I thi...
