Oh, in 1963 there was '000' scale around and could be bought - some 2mm/foot. Even American outline locos. The forerunner of all that however was Professor Kersting's attempt in 1948/9 to introduce 'K' ( 1:180 ) scale - he demonstrated working models on 8mm track on the Nuremberg Toy Fair, IIRC.

Well, 35n3 is around 25MM (24.75MM) gauge...something like that. I have some 35 standard gauge on my layout, I just measured 4'8" on my trusty 1:35 scale ruler and overlooked the .5" narrowness. Who knows anyway? I did have a 35n3 siding on my old layout, PSC 1:48 O std. gauge archbar trucks reguaged worked out just right for narrow gauge in the larger scale. Needless to say, the standard gauge trucks will need to be scratched up but I will only need one coal car and it is just scenery anyway.
I suggested M scale for 1:35 since it is military scale but I don't care for letters so I stick with the scale ratio. I gotta get a life sometime....!
