T-Gauge is Coming!

I have some of the world’s smallest self-powered model trains coming in for review next week.  If you haven’t seen T-gauge, it is probably because it is just too small.

Seriously though, T-Gauge weight is at 1/450 scale, less than 1/2 the size of ‘Z’ gauge, the previous ‘Smallest Model Train Holder’.

So why am I reviewing T-Gauge?  All will become clear…

Meanwhile, you can find out lots about T-Gauge  at David Smith’s Blog,  http://www.t-gauge.net.

    As I remember T scale was “Table top” Scale and larger than ‘O’ an very old scale. ZZ would make more sense.

    Hi Ilpo, Do you know when that term was used for Table Top? The ‘T’ in the ‘current’ T gauge stands for Three Millimeters, the gauge of the track. It is 1:450 scale. A great source of information about the new T-Gauge is http://www.t-gauge.net.

  • T.Michael Davis says:

    A friend has built a T train “In a box.” It is about 15 inches square and literally is in a box with a hinged top. He takes it to train shows with two more — Z and N — and has them wired to a push button that kids can push to make the trains go. I have Z and N, but that’s as small as I’ll go. I don’t want to have to wear binoculars when running my trains.
