Hello all. I've generally modeled UK prototypes in N, but a few years ago was entranced by the possibilities of T, so switched over temporarily. Like many temporary changes, that one is starting to look remarkably permanent. I am a software and electronics type, so most of my projects emphasize control, signalling and automation systems, all DIY. I built one small exhibition layout in T Gauge (Sarum Bridge, UK c1980), then largely dropped out of modeling for a couple of years, but am now back into things again. My current focus is on developing and using linear motor tracks for small scales (1:350 - 1:600), for both rail and road (and canals and...). The plan is to make a series of small layouts as experiments to see how far I can take this approach. Its strengths and weaknesses are significantly different from what we are all used to, and I can see it having great potential. The first little micro layout is finished except for trees and backscene - Monbulk Creek, Australian narrow gauge in 1:350. I'll start a separate thread for this. Construction has just started on the second layout, slightly larger and currently unnamed - a fictitious minor station somewhere near the edge of the Melbourne (Australia) suburban network, c1980. Subsequent layouts will be of UK prototypes, my main area of interest.
