Welcome

Welcome to Narrow Gauge Trains, Events and 3D modelling. My current focus is 012 gauge which is 1:45 scale trains running on 12mm gauge track. My prototypes are mostly british and from ww1 trench railways, but some swedish vehicles turn up to in this otherwise swedish landscape.

Last thursday we visited Ohs bruk, mainly for measuring a switch-stand to make a 3D print of it in metal, but also haven´t been here for a few years now so it was very nice to look around and see what´s changed. This is part three of three.
