When you are starved of space, money and time or if you want to do in a different manner, try a micro layout on a n Iphone case.

In paralell to my layout sidi fontana, I want to explore another scale and another way to do. The layout is at n scale.

In the past I have done also a pizza layout but at gn15 scale.



The Iphone case is from M. Kobayashi, the locomotive is a japaneese one (7 tons) from TGW.

I will add a building as the backdrop, I will do snow and the layout will be located in Japan.

Interesting, that would be an ideal use for some EggerBhan narrow gauge stuff...

Of course we can run on the layout  9 mm gauge loco as soon as the wheel base is less  less than 16mm or 0.62 inch

Initially I hesitate between hoe and n too.

Wow...those old EB equipment's prices sure blows the "no money" concept. I had some of those back in the 1970's and they were, if I can say it nicely, operationally crappy! Oh well...

Woodie

As much as it irks me to agree with a moderator you are on the money. I still have some, the little tram engine and 2 excursion cars the plan for which was to put them behind a piquet fence as an amusemnet ride on my layout....
I think the reason for the cost was the era, in those days people would give good money for anything and because they were made where they were we all fell for them being HQ when in reality they are um err junque...
