Lovely vid HERE if you fancy building a T gauge layout (6 minutes).

Well after being told we are all ignorant about T gauge on here I suppose that is true, well to a point. I decided to do little googling about T gauge. Far as I can tell There is little if anything available in the scale. There are a couple of sets being sold. At least they are being advertised, if in stock I would not know. Have not been unable to find any information about the quality of either the detailing or mechanics of the scale. (no close ups available) In short there does not seem to be much information available any where. None of the model shops I have looked at know anything about the scale or what is available. Apart from the fact that a layout was put on display at an exhibition somewhere, which I have not even bothered to look up. So fail to to understand how anybody can accuse people on this forum about having no knowledge about something which seems nothing more than an experiment. The people on this forum are a knowledgable bunch and also on the whole nice people to talk with as well who are often prepared to go out of their way to help others in their questions about our hobby. And other interesting subjects as well at times.
T scale I think must have turned some heads at the exhibition perhaps. Is it practical, I don't think so. ...........John

Did you look at the Tgauge.com site John? I've been browsing on it this morning and I'm quite taken by the idea of a coffee table size layout. Trouble is I still remember why I moved op to 00 from N gauge because of the fiddlyness of it. But still.................

I looked at loads Terry, I dont know if I looked at that one and not looking at any more.
I just thought it was an insult to accuse the forum in general about being ignorant about a subject which hardly exists. I took it as an insult to people in general on this forum. How eve,r have now noticed the guy seems to have now deleted the comments. I should think so as well....John

No, and there's not a lot in OK stock unless you like the HST . It still has a pull on me though I have to confess. There is a you tube vid. I saw earlier of a US guy unboxing one of the starter sets. It appears the Marklin controller is very good.

Sorry John but I didn't see the insulting comments you refer to (hope it wasn't me )
