So you all know by now, despite my many years on the railway, having reached retirement age I am now embarking a new career in the model railway world. So tell me compared with 00gauge, how different is 3mm ? The only other two gauges I know are 0 and N.

One thing i would suggest though is there is a bit of a minefeild of standards. off the top of my head i think its 11mm or 14.2mm gauge. I recall there are difficulties getting motors to fit the smaller gauge.


Yes I wish it was more easily available, but as it isn't i've gone for OO9 instead! Its finding chassis thats the main problem as I don't feel competent buuilding them in OO let alone anything smaller! I thought it was 12mm gauge as produced currently by Peco, although mainly for the continental market, where it is still made?
