Hello!Currently I am an HO modeler who models California in the 1930’s. My layout was featured in the May, 2016 issue of Model Railroader magazine – A Stream Era Switching Layout.I am wanting to model in a larger scale.  On30 seems a bit to big.  I also need to control costs so I am thinking of switching to Sn42 (Sn3 ½)  - S scale narrow gauge on  HO gauge track.  I plan on scratch building all of my structures and rolling stock. Since there is very little out there on this scale/gauge, I am hoping to connect with someone else who may have tried it.Looking forward to this forum! Jim

You may be interested in taking a look at the
New Zealand Model Railway Guild. They should be able to supply a list of Sn3&1/2 suppliers. There was a company in New Zealand called Railmaster Exports which made S scale NG, in Sn3 and Sn3&1/2. I will admit I still have 3 of the WP&Y
90 Class diesel's, perhaps on day I will complete them.
