Such structures in "N" scale would most certainly work for our layout, as there is not typically a "standard" for barns and other such agricultural structures.

Thanks for the idea!

Does anyone have a good suggestion for fencing in TT scale?

Having animals on a farm is nice, but if you cannot keep them contained, that is a problem.

If you feel like ordering from Europe and if you don't mind plastic, Auhagen has some assortment: https://www.auhagen-shop.de/?cat=c27_Fe ... de=default

I live in an agricultural zone here in PA (dairy, corn, hay...) and every farmer around here has used electrical fencing for animal husbandry for the past...um, 60 years at least. I would use scale, or near scale, wood posts connected by 2 lines of a suitably thin thread or monofilament line.

That would work for cattle, but not goats and sheep.

Here is an idea: make posts out of sections of metal wire, and then use aluminum screen, cut to size, and attached to the posts.

Does anyone else think that will work?

Yup, it will work with a bit of effort.

If you want to scratch build a chain link fence nylon tulle works better than aluminum screen. It is finer, comes in several colours and grain sizes and takes spray paint quite well. Tulle is used in wedding veils and you can buy it at fabric/sewing stores. A roll like this will be enough to build 17 million miles of fence.

Luke Towan has a good tutorial on YouTube on how to make a chain link fence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_guMOYoCpw
He also has tutorials on hay bales and other farm stuff.

Actually, the effect that I am going for is to look like field fence, not chain link, but that is a very neat idea, nontheless!

Thanks!

Fordson Model F
Now, my 2nd attempt.
I've ordered the "N scale" Fordson on Shapeways:

It looks good for TT. And all dimensions fit the TT scale.

So, guys, if you need the TT scale Fordson tractor, order the "N scale" one!

Thanks for the heads-up!

I still am looking for a real Fordson Model F for my farm, mainly as a show piece.
