    N runs on a 9mm gauge, Nn3 uses 6.5mm and that scales out to 40.96 inches. T Gauge is 3mm, or 18.88 inches.

    How badly would Z scale equipment on T scale track correspond to narrow gauge Z?

    3mm in Z is 25.96 inches

    Plenty close to the Maine 2 Foot narrow gauge RRs.

    BoxcabE50 and All,

    That’s my initial thought! For N-SCALE 2 Foot.

    This is really cool! People say Z scale is hard to do! I have 3D printed lots of stuff for Z scale ! Now the trick is to be able to print in 1:480 scale. with all there rules with wall size and support wire size. It' hard enough to get them to print rivets in Z scale they have to be a little out of scale. This T scale seem really interesting and you probably be able to put in the drawer of a dresser and have a complete layout! sound strange but fun! Lets start the show!! where the Pop Corn!!!!

    I wonder if anyone has the gumption to model S.R. &. R.L RR’s 2-6-2 or a S.R.& R.L. RR Forney in T-Gauge. If so I would like to see the end result.

    So, what you're saying is T gauge track with Z scale rolling stock is roughly 2-foot narrow gauge Z (Zn2)? I can honestly say I have never heard such a term before, but the Maine two-foot gauge in Zn2 would be cool to see!

    All,
    I was thinking more along the lines of Nn3 N-SCALE shells on T-gauge mechanisms which might equal to Nn2. And there’s the possibility with Z-SCALE as HemiAdda2d mentioned.

    Tom is correct. It would be N scale on T chassis. This would be such as using an Z diesel shell, and adapting an N cab to fit, plus N details.

    This is how HOn30 is done, when simulating 2 ft type operations.
