    Modified Emma take II
    I volunteer at a two foot gauge railway which is nothing but small stuff.  This is the smallest of all the historic two foot gauge stuff in maine.  Even the smallest standard gauge loco looks big to me!  Small is beautiful!
    Ebay Oddball, not G gauge but still large scale ???

    Just what did I buy off eBay?
     
    It's hand built, it's large scale, but it ain't G gauge. Near as I can figure this was built for a standard gauge section on a narrow gauge layout. Gauge looks like 2.5" it's all hand made, even the whe...  more
    Ebay Oddball, not G gauge but still large scale ???
    i doubt, that it is  Gauge 3. then it should be 89mm.
    looks at the most like F-scale standard gauge. (70.62mm)
    or either F-scale narrow gauge or 1:22.5 standard gauge. (both 64mm)

    which works out at 3.6" actual diameter.  While they...  more

    New Roundhouse live steamer for 2020
    Looks like locomotives the Navy used at the Pearl Harbor coaling station.  For reasons lost to history, the coaling station used standard gauge track, while the common carrier Oahu Rail & Land Co., every military installation and almost all of th...  more
    Snow Plow needed
    Well it is finally time to get off the dime and start on the bucker plow.
    A lot of head scratching and napkin drawings to get this converted from standard gauge to narrow gauge but I think I have hit on a plan to move forward with.

    AMS Coupler - Long Longing Car
    I think Al is referring to the AMS 1:32 scale coupler.  He just had the wrong standard gauge scale.  Isn't G gauge wonderful?   He is correct, I do use them for 3/4 size couplers on my EBT equipment. The 1:20 and 1:32 scale couple...  more
