Helmut,

Technically, Sn2 should be 3/8 inches in gauge. However as you noted, there are not readily available trucks and locomotives for such a gauge. Here in the US, several modelers are using HOn3 track standards and mechanisms to alleviate this. It results in an error of a little over 10% greater than the true measurements, but it also means that scratch built running gear isn't required. It's my model and I'm can live with the small error when I consider the alternatives.

FYI, when I started this I had the same discussions and was given advice about this from the more experienced folks. I have seen some of the European models which were constructed around N gauge mechanisms which involves a small error in the opposite direction, it is a little less than the truly accurate gauge. However, Frary and Hayden modeled much of the flavor of the Maine two footers using N scale track and mechanisms in HO scale. So as in any modeling endeavor, work to what you are comfortable with.

Hopefully this answers any questions you had. If not let me know and I'll try to help. But I know I don't know everything. If I did I wouldn't be watching the forums trying to learn more.

...... & I see that the Sheriff's faithful Madame Salada has also drawn one of her  weapons.

Ummmm .... tight fitting, slightly kinky looking black uniforms -- never thought of trying that before, thanks Si !. 

As Zebedee said, "time for bed".

Apologies to our U.S. viewers who probably don't get that - a speaking dwarf on a bouncy single coil spring - no, don't bother figuring it out. Or a talking cow called Ermintrude, or a stoned rabbit by the name of Dylan. They don't make TV like that anymore.

Cheers,            Michael   (& Zebedee, Dylan & Co)

" YOU'RE UNDER ARREST SUGAR ! " says Officer Peaches...

...the most pleasantly perfumed police-person in the 1:35 Squad Dog-Section.

In a recent interview & centrefold for Police-Person Periodical, Ms. Peaches told the magazine :-

I would like to travel the World & meet people.
Be kind to animals...
...and LOCK UP BAD-GUYS.

Hi Helmut.

Thanks for the link...
...classic entertainment !

Of the 'Magic Roundabout generation'...
...I saw them all on the family B&W valve-T.V. !
(which eventualy caught fire, in the lounge !!)

Tragic news though.
About 20 years ago, I sorted through a box of old 60s/70s toys from my parents loft.
Apart from some trains, slot-cars and LEGO...
...the rest went IN THE BIN !!
(stupid !)

Unfortunatly this included my miniatures of Zebede, Mr.McHenry (on his scooter), Brian the snail, etc. & a few of the wonderful Magic Roundabout trees !

I think they may have been made by Corgi, perhaps.

Sigh.

Well, at least the dwarf made it to immortality as a C64 game.
