I really like those olde tyme details on the undercarriages of the HO Annie and Clarabels.


RE: N Scale Dryaw Mock-Up Project - TrainMan2001 - 08-06-2020

Thanks for the pictures and comparisons! Do you by chance have the Tomix Annie and Clarabel to do a comparison between those and the Bachmann models?


RE: N Scale Dryaw Mock-Up Project - rekp - 08-06-2020

no long gone im afraid


RE: N Scale Dryaw Mock-Up Project - TrainMan2001 - 08-06-2020

That's alright. Thanks for the pictures!

Well, the C Class got here today! It's a lovely runner, and it even looks good with the buildings and narrow gauge stock ?.
___________

However, some reviews of the new N Scale Thomas range by Bachmann show that their still a bit large compared to British N Gauge, so it's a good thing that this was only a "Mock-Up" Project. I may in future do a small scene for the C Class, though.

She is a beauty, I love the finish.

Well, I'm back a lot earlier than expected.
I've been home for almost two weeks now, and found out that the N Scale Thomas range was released and is actually to British N Scale, which is pretty nice! So naturally, I ordered Thomas, along with a couple of wagons. One nice thing is that, although he is based on the CGI model, he's actually scaled to his Classic Series size! The wagons are also nicely done, and all 3 models run very well. Thomas' mechanism also includes pretty much everything I was thinking of putting into the OO scale model I was designing, which helps him run so well! The only things I would try to change are the rods, the face, and maybe giving him some realistic details (although that one isn't really a priority). You can also see a project in the background of a couple of pictures.

Welcome back, TM2K1! I was puzzled to see you logged in from time to time during those weeks, until I realised you've been looking through your old posts. How have things been for you during your absence? I've been looking forward to your comeback for some time now.

On topic: wonderful to know Bachmann made sure their N scale range would fit in with other UK models. In that case, the Tomix Thomas and Percy would work better for a Strasburg layout than as the actual characters. With all the existing N models and kits of classes that happen to be in the franchise, having official Thomas models that look right with them is "really useful". I take it the new project will be Ffarquhar Sheds (for when Toby is made). Is it?


RE: TrainMan2001's N Scale Trains and Projects - Tons of Trackmasters - 03-02-2021

The Bachmann narrow gauge engines are also N scale correct?
they look absolutely gorgeous (the same can't be said about the price though)


RE: TrainMan2001's N Scale Trains and Projects - DalaGStanator - 03-02-2021

Those are H0n30 (runs on N gauge but in scale with H0).


RE: TrainMan2001's N Scale Trains and Projects - Tons of Trackmasters - 03-02-2021

ah i see. thanks LaG

Welcome Back T-Man! :)


RE: TrainMan2001's N Scale Trains and Projects - TrainMan2001 - 03-03-2021

Thanks everyone! Things have been going well, and I feel like the last fee months were good for me.

And, the prices are pretty comparable to regular British stock. The Narrow Gauge and N Scale Thonas lines are only more expensive than the HO line because there's a lot of features for good running in them (e.g.: brass gears, bearings, flywheels, metal in general) that the HO models don't have. And it surprisingly shows quite well with the differences in performance. The N Scale and Narrow Gauge stuff I do have run a lot better than any HO model I have had.

Here's a picture of something I worked on today. Does anybody recognize what they're going to be?

I might post some better pictures of the sheds tomorrow.
