I know several out here are looking at 1:35 or 1:32 scale as a neat way to model "extra narrow gauge" lines. I was thinking (dangerous) that maybe those who are of "like minds" might get together sometime on the chat line for some conversation and ideas. Of course, this might be a "pie in the sky" thing, nobody wants to mess with it.

If two are interested, that's conversation...three interested, that's a conspiricy...four interested and it becomes a movement! No, I don't believe Bachmann will release any 1:35n2 locos and Athearn would say "What???" but it might be fun exchanging ideas. Just a thought. If nobody is interested, I will be very depressed (wink, wink) but I think there are some of you who might appreciate some communication with other "closet 35'ers". Well?

Woodie-looking for those nits to pick...

I'm not much of one for "real time" online discussion. I don't type very well in that setting. I make too many mistakes and I fall behind too fast. I'm not saying I wouldn't participate at all but my participation would be very limited.

Mike-it's OK...just knowing somebody else likes the scale is enough for me.

1:35 scale, particularly 1:35n2... What's not to like? Big trains run on HO track. Bachmann has made a small fortune on that concept. Will they make 1:35 scale locomotives and rolling stock? Lets hope not. ;)

Yep, I love using Bachmann's On30 locos "upscaled" and I have their On30 arch bar trucks on almost all my rolling stock. Let's keep it a secret...

HIYA...

I'm all for it!!
I WILL start on something 35ish as soon as I wrap up the shay Im working on.
And me being me it will be military related. But not combat.
I have always had a thing for 60cm stuff. And Baldwin made a very nice little 2-6-2t and 4-6-0.
Being 1/35 would also make it easier to mill out frames and such also.

We don't need anyone moving over to 1/35th or anything else close to it. We need to keep it a total secret or it will lose all its uniqueness (Is that even a word?).

;)

Ya'll know I don't like sharing any of my ideas either.

 

Like the guy at Walmart sez, "Git yur stuff and git out!"

 

;)

Mr. Mudgeon says:  35n2 is fine, but On30 will fit in your garage! :)  (Of course, it looks like this could be bashed into a 35n2 critter that would still fit inside the garage!)

Now, in terms of chat, that's a possibility ... what I really need is some way to get myself placed high up in some sort of 35n2 Pyramid Scheme, so every time I lead some poor soul into this nonsense, I end up with more time and money to work on mine! :bg: (_!_)

In terms of combining military models, vehicles and a 1/35 civilian garage ... Resicast makes this nice little kit based on a WW1 trench railway vehicle ...

It "may" turn out that Mr. Mudgeon served with the Engineers during the Great War and that he'll end up restoring one of these in the garage.  (I've already got the kit, I just need the pyramid scheme to work out to provide the time and money needed to do all this stuff!) :cool:
