  • 1870's California in Sn3.5 -Reboot

    Ended this idea back in 2008. The lack of available easily made motive power and other supplies caused me to abandon the project.

    With the availability of new items and information we are developing some new stuff.

    Rubber gauging is fun.

    Thank you if you visit

    I'm pretty sure New Zealand's railroad system was 42" gauge.

      Prototypically 3-1/2 foot is the more logical choice for the 1870's. The first common carrier narrow gauge, not a converted horse tramway like the Festinog, was implemented by Carl Pihl in Norway in 1862. The British empire introduced 3-1/2 foot gauge into India in the early 1860's, thus it became the "British Imperial Gauge". New Zealand is 3-1/2 foot gauge and many model in Sn3.5. Australia has the Queensland which is still 3-1/2 foot

        Got my conversion of an HO Bachmann 4-4-0 to an Sn3.5 1870's 4-4-0 to a point where the loco is running.



        The gondolas need new trucks and decking.

          I think it looks good
          It's only make-believe
