Hello from Berlin!
« on: January 05, 2019, 03:12:17 PM »
Hi everyone.

I'm absolutely new to the world of N Gauge.

I had a layout when I was a kid, HO scale.

I work in 3D on the computer but really want something hands-on to do in my free time... My flat is tiny... so I thought NGAUGE!

Also, I am thinking of building an urban tram network in a hilly Welshish/Northernish town.
I figure that'll allow me to essentially build on shelves in deep relief.

Anyone know anything about tram availability?

Any advice on how and where to start?

Regards,

Jimbobbedyjobob

Welcome aboard.
I know nothing about trams Im afraid but there are a few on here who do so no doubt someone will be along in due course.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

As far as British trams go, not very good, AFAIK nothing available RTR.

Take a look at this thread: Thornton Gate for some ideas.

BTW the situation is slightly better for Berlin:

Takahachikawa - Japanese and other trains

Birmingham Knotmore Street - (ex) GWR mainline through the Midlands

We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.

Lemke/Hobbytrain, Arnold and Kato do Euro trams - a trip around DM-Toys, MB Lippe and MB Kramme websites would be useful.

Hi Jimbobbedyjobob and welcome to the forum. Although not British outline, I can thoroughly recommend the Kato trams, (or anything else Kato - well made and lovely running stock  :thumbsup:).
