Found a guy doing TT narrow gauge on N track. Impressive models. There are 3 pages.

Good stuff. He seems to have found the same trick as I have - that Bachmann N drive wheels are the right size for TT - 3'.

I have been considering turning a Life-Like 0-6-0 N gauge loco into a narrow gauge TT engine, seeing N used for Narrow-guage TT is definitely a pleasant thing to see.

There are some european manufacturers that produce TT narrow gauge. TTm is TT meter gauge running on N scale track and TTe which is narrower gauges running on Z scale track. I've been eyeballing some Czech kits (of course) for a future branch line. Here are a couple links to DK-Model. Sorry the whole thing is Czech or German only. Click on the pictures for a close up (especially the steamer in the first link, you get to see how they did the mechanism).

In New Zealand "NZ120" is TT on N track, representing 3'6" gauge. Sn3.5 is the dominant scale for modelling the country's trains though.

I saw a travel show a few years back with a guy crossing New Zealand by rail. Absolutely breath taking scenery! A beautiful country to be sure. Mr. B, are there any links or pictures of these models?
