only a 3mm wide track....12 inches would make a reasonable oval basic track....just a thought..imagine what you could do with a 4 foot by 8 foot area with this train..

I am interested and glad you asked.
It is a bit small for my eyesite and expensive, but I think it is way cool! I don't plan on buying any till I get some new eyes. LOL
I have been planning on buying a kit in this scale once they are more readily available and I have the money for it.
If you get one I would love to here all about it and I am sure others will also. You will be one of the first. Post some pics if you can. Need help with that? Just ask.

This shop in New Jersey has about the largest selection of TT gauge materials I have ever seen:

They're not TT, they're T scale 1:440 I think it is. They run off of cell phone vibrator sized motors. There is a vid out there but I lost track of it. They are neat but don't run well at this time, but for $44, they'd be great as a amusement park feature on an HO layout.

1:440

That is nuts! I would be like 0.16 inches tall if I were to be a miniature in a T scale layout! How on earth can you design scenery that small?

LOL, that amusement park idea is awsome

Oh, doh.

Would make a good idea for putting into something, like a shoebox layout, or a under the coffee table empire.
