Modeling industrial narrow-gauge lines
« on: August 02, 2017, 06:38:08 PM »
Walthers has a new series of products out; track and equipment to model narrow-gauge industrial trackage.  May or may not be super-prototypical but the track reminds me of that used in some tie plants - such as near the old Hill Yard in Indianapolis.  ( think that trackage is still at least partly in place, or appears so on Google Maps.
These are non-operating models but could make nice scenery items.

There are some European brands that offer operating industrial narrow gauge HO trains if someone wants one that actually operates.  Egger Bahn was one older brand, AHM imported some years ago and there are others.     Mike

Checked the Egger-Bahn models out - those are nice.  Wish they still made them.  That's one brand I had not heard of before
