Hi Max,

HOe is closer to HOn30, both of which run on N-gauge track (9mm). The accuracy is pretty good for the European gauges between 750mm and 800mm, but a bit of a compromise for American 3' gauge.

HOn3 runs on 10.5mm track, which is accurate for 3' narrow gauge, but at the cost of no longer being the same as N-gauge track.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Jeff, I'm blown away by your work! It is some of the best I've ever seen.

I think you would enjoy a visit to the Napa Model Railroad Historical Society. It's definitely worth a visit if you come to the Bay Area. You can find some video on Youtube.

Although, I actually prefer your artwork!

Jeff,

never heard of those H0 variation scales before in Europe.

Are you "only" into the visual recreation or is there actually running gear as well ?

Cheers,

Max

Hi Max,

It's all DCC-controlled, so it runs (and has sound).

That being said, I'm far more into building than running.

He he... come to think of it that kind of mirrors my DIY audio efforts -- I've built way more than I can listen to.

Jeff,

I probably have some 100 kg worth of boxes with H0e stuff from my dad, mainly Roco/Liliput.

I even remember some "pilgrimage" to Mariazell in Austria some 30 years ago to take pics of the main station of one of the most famous narrow tracks railsroads in Europe...

Funny you brought that subject up

Max

EDIT: I think even some gear driven variants from another (more steep) railroad..

In the late 1920s Autocar licensed their 'CA' truck design to the Russian army (which became the ZiS-5). This is fortunate because no one makes a model of the Autocar CA, whereas several manufactures include the the ZiS-5 in their military line.

So here's my single piece of Roco, repainted to civilian colours:
