I sent Hornby an Email asking if they would actually consider doing N-gauge Thomas the tank engine and friends, the answer was short and to the point....

NO!

Bit mean as they hold the license for Thomas so no one else can sell it in the UK.

What I'm getting to, is that I wanted a TrakMat layout in N-gauge with the Thomas and friends engines.

If you click on the 'My layout' link below in my signature bar, I have made an exact copy of the track mat layout in N-gauge it's not too hard to work out.

The locos are from Japan. Tomix make them.

Cheers

That looks excellent, I would be interested to know what size the layout is? and what track do you use & underlay for track...
Puzzler..

The layout is about 1m square.

The track is just Peco N-gauge Setrack.

The basboard is MDF, covered with a layer of cork tiles, the track is just pinned down on this then fine ballast added, and then using the watered down PVA/washing up liquid mix using a dropper I glued it in place.

Cheers
