Ya well just so ya know,I will take all questions about "S" gauge so poor old Madmike won't have to be havin' a hemorrage everytime somebody asks a question. I do hope this will help .

So what I gotta do is get a topic for "S" on the home page so anybody who happens by and is interested in that scale can chat with me about it and the rest of you too if you want to get involved. How do I get the topic posted? I want to post a short video of my Superliner.  No it ain't runnin' yet but I did get it dug out of my storage unit. Pete

Man-there are lots of fish in the sea and they all have different size scales...just like here! I don't mean to get the thread "off track", but I think I did miss 1:32 and 1:35 scale...probably just an oversight. How about TTn2, HOn20, Sn42?? They all beg to be mentioned.

Hi Norgale

Are you working in "S" or " Sn 3.

If you are working with Sn3 the place for you is "Narrow Gauge "

At the moment S standard gauge is not provided for, but please understand you would be our only member working in that scale.  Suggest you use HO/OO section, and see how it goes.

If after a period of time if it is active we could then look to setting something up.

Don

PS I like Sn3 but there is not a lot of equipment out there and what there is  expensive.

Good suggestion. I think I'm the only one here doing anything in standard Z gauge, so I just stuck my Z posts in the N section. Doesn't seem to be any need of a seperate section. Like Don says, if it takes off...

I wasn't trying to mess with talk of S scale...matter of fact, I believe that TT scale should be where N is today...and S should be the "choice" that HO is now. So, I would go with S if there was a thing as "starting again" in this life.

US 0 scale 1/4" to ft

European 0 scale is 7mm/ft

H0 3.5mm/ft

00 scale 4mm/ft

009 is 4mm/ft running on N scale track (narrow gauge)
