The Layout is effectively FINISHED!!!!! Hurray!!

I've glued the final flock, trees and random fluff and the layout is now effectively finished! It took nearly a year (which was 99% procrastination on the project). I have learnt much about working with such small models. The idea seemed so easy in the beginning, it turned out to be a bit more of an effort. Mostly due to frustration with dealing with such small stuff, there's a sheep somewhere on my floor that I'll never find.

While I say its effectively finished, I do intend to carry on with small bits and bobs, like adding more cars and people and other finishing touches.

Without further ado, the interesting bit of the blog post, the pics:

List of T Gauge suppliers

I've made a page on the blog that lists the T Gauge suppliers I've found. There's a new bar at the top of the page with a link to the new Useful T Gauge Info page.

Water + printed roads = bad times

I've learnt to keep water away from my railway the hard way. I don't know when it happened but at some point I must have dripped water onto the road. Probably by moving a drink or the pot of water to clean brushes. I didn't find out until long afterwards and the ink had run horribly.

Lesson learnt: if its made of paper and/or printed then never let water get near it because it will go horribly wrong.

Unfortunate loss of the forum and the new Facebook replacement

I found out recently that the forum on had closed due to problems with some disagreeable behaviour. I was quite sad when I found this out. I had visited the forum regularly and it was probably the best source of news and best place of discussion for the various people's projects and hard to find products. I rarely posted but I read what I could, it helped me find the stuff on Shapeways, which helped a lot as there aren't many British style buildings available.

Now, the good people from (the best supplier of T Gauge related products), have created a Facebook group The group started literally in the last few hours so there aren't many posts yet, but I'm hoping this turns into the new home of the T Gauge Community.

Long Live T Gauge!
