No Sventton, what you are describing is H0m scale:
H0m gauge is used to represent metre-gauge trains in H0 scale ( 1/87 ). It runs on 12 mm (0.472 in) TT scale tracks ( from wikipedia )

TTm gauge is used to represent metre-gauge trains in TT scale ( 1/120) . It runs on 9 mm N scale tracks.
So for the bicabine steam tramway , the chassis is the Bachmann N scale 3 axles MDT Plymouth switcher ( it is a nice little running engine )
The wagons chassis are from Fleischmann N scale wagons.

I tried 3 different techniques for the engine shed. From left to right:
Embossed styrene version. The bull's eye and the windows are 3D printed.
Paper version cut using the silhouette portrait cutting machine
Paper version cut using the traditional way: Xacto knive

Thank you AstroGoat760 for the encouragement.

Now the Montfort brewery.

I named the brewery Montfort because that's the little hamlet in Belgium where I was born.

This is the picture of the prototype

The same in TT scale made out of paper and cardboard . I had to mirror it so the track can get inside the building
