I have been looking at what a couple of the aussie boys have been doing here replicating victorian Rail equipment in T, They have been showing their little modules off for a few years, real nice work.

I was chatting to one lady who had 3 layouts in small draws at a little rail exhibition in Adelaide in 2011, she had a small T scale layout, but it kept derailing and stalling by the time i got there. I liked the idea of having a "narrow gauge" tramway using T for say a coal mine, but yeah the points would be an issue, although other T scalers have made their own better looking versions.
