Re: [FS32NGModelrail] Re: are we alone?
- You are not alone.
In New Zealand there is a whole cottage industry devoted to 9mm to the foot
scale (1/34th scale on 0 gauge track). There are two main manufacturers
involved - Nelson Kennedy and Von Strapp - and the combined ranges include a
locomotive kit, carriage and wagon kits, plus a huge range of scratch built
Nelson has his own website, while Von Strapp has a pdf price list that I can
forward to you if you want it.
Having said that I now have my feet firmly in the 0n30 camp as well - what a
neat scale to model in.
