    The code means the height of the rail. In other words Code 80 means .080" high. If I'm wrong I'm sure somebody will correct me.

    N scale would work gauge wise. The ties are smaller and spaced closer together. You could cut out ties to make them look more realistic. Or you could try and make your own turnouts.

    Anyway, I'm still curious about that...but I did find some HOn30 turnouts on Ebay, so I need to get serious about getting more done on the benchwork, etc

    I am in HOn30 and hoping someone can help with a track question...I have used (and have some leftover) PECO HOn30 flex track - code 80, model #SL 400. I need to purchase some turnouts and am finding the pickings slim and very expensive. Can anyone suggest a source or an N scale alternative? Would N scale code 80 rail turnouts be a match or much smaller rail?

    I'm at a standstill with money in hand

    Nice scene! I like the buildings and trees.
    Do you happen to know Syra?

    Good Morning All. I'm modeling Maine in HOn30, although my layout has gradually started to look more like the Pacific Northwest as I have become enamored with the Bragdon rock-casting system. I'll start a thread here soon and share some pics...I'm also planning a pretty significant expansion to begin any day now.

    Glad to be here...John

    Thank you, Cody. Now the rectangular cutout in the deck of the Climax makes sense. Too bad it it out of stock.

    I think this is the one you want:

    Unfortunately out of stock. That's a good looking climax kit though.

    Does anyone know if the Tomytec powered chassis in the first link is the one needed for the Shapeways shell in the second link?

    Bruce, one day/someday is almost my mantra. Although, having most of my train stuff packed away in storage is forcing me to work on what I've got. (However, being within a 15 minute bike ride to a well stocked local shop has caused new things to begin to accumulate, especially as I pass it twice a day commuting to and from work)

    So many cool projects. I have three of the NWSL Fleas. One in HO, two in HOn3. I keep saying someday I'm going to build a critter or two. Someday...
