As predicted by a fellow modeller, the vertical connection for the front bogie did not survive testing - though it was fine on all tangents on flat track, it derailed regularly on grade. It has thus been replaced by a more traditional rear mounted swivelling mount.
Welcome - Some Australian 3'6" Railway Modelling in HOn3.5
Welcome - this site canvasses some of my modelling of Australian 3'6" gauge railways in HOn3.5. Most work is intended to be on railways in South Australia whether Government or Private, with some Tasmanian stock also.
My models are in HO scale (3.5 mm/foot) on 12mm gauge track - this combination (HOn3.5) has been chosen for its' fidelity to 3'6" gauge. HOn3.5 is a "modeller's scale" with no commercially available RTR rollingstock for South Australia or Tasmania. Everything here then is hand built.
