    Default 15 inch gauge equipment (or similar)

    Hi all,

    I am very curious. Just found a 15 inch gauge locomotive and track for Trainz, and has anyone made 15 inch equipment for Trainz?

    I am aware MSTnoodle did some 24 inch stuff, and there is some 10 1/4 on the DLS, but I can't find anything else

    Can anyone help me?

    I didn't know there was 15-inch content. I have some 10 1/4 and have seen the 18in mining stuff, but never 15in. Where'd you get the loco and track?

    Well, there is a compromise to the 15 inch stuff. It has a face.



    However, it comes with 15 inch gauge track. I'm sure the author will reskin it in no time though, and he is making more.

    Found this here in 2020 while using search engines looking for what 15 inch gauge things there may or many not be for TANE. I was once actively modeling Gn15 and participating in the Gnatterbox forum for it and O9 and yesterday thought someone might have made some minimum gauge track and rolling stock.
    There are 4 items of 15 inch gauge track in Download station but several variations of search terms there and in Google found nothing to run on the available track.

    The 4 track splines are the following, and they do work in TANE.
    (Search also found the not-15-inch-gauge South African Railway "NG15" class 2-8-2 steam locomotive.)
    (also, didn't locate the metric equivalent of 15 inches, 381mm)

    Someone requested I make it a while back, I forget who but I did have something to test on the track.

    Got it!

    Doesn't appear to be anything else, leastwise not on the DLS. There was allegedly some 15" stuff with faces on one of the now gone Thomas sites.

    Thanks for bringing that/those to light!
    They are now downloaded!
    And now that their name is mentioned I remember learning in late 1970s of them over there in UK, along with a couple other outfits like Romney, Hythe, & Dymchurch, but the last several days none of their names would come to mind & that mind, which thanks to a couple neurological, endocrine, and mitochondrial, diseases is not as sharp as it used to be and did not think to do a general Google for the names of any of the 15 inch gauge railways in order to search for content that way.

    Just for fun, here are their official websites, https://ravenglass-railway.co.uk/ and https://www.rhdr.org.uk/

    Thought it would be polite to let you know where it went, employed it to show size of 15in equipment and track relative to 30 inch, and draw attention to a useful application of minimum gauge.
    Track extends over to passenger station for the 30 inch gauge trains.

    I'm actually hoping to get some freelance 15inch gauge locos and rolling stock designed sometime in the near future. I think it's about time that we had an expanded range in that regard. I think some of Steve Flanders' WD wagons could even be re-gauged to 15inch, the wagon bodies look to be about the right width for such a gauge. Some of the open WD wagons could be modified into some 3-4 compartment carriages depending on which of the wagon types are used.

    There is a seafront 15inch guage miniature railway included in the route 'Dearnby and District v2' (by Lataxe Kids and myself). The 'Trainspotter Session' which accompanies it made use of the Northern Rock loco plus some FR 2ft gauge rolling stock which overhang sufficiently to hide the discrepancy. I couldn't find any 15 inch rolling stock. No other 15inch-specific items are used, with stations etc all being assembled from DLS components.

    Sounds like a plan to me!

    And since the 'freelance' word was used, feel free to be inspired if any of it is worth being inspired by, https://flic.kr/s/aHsiYQ2vbR and https://flic.kr/s/aHsjfFNaPD Some of those, incomplete in these images, definitely have a more fanciful than strictly practical element.

    The 2 locomotives with the semi truck exhaust and the little streamlined one were to be for passenger trains.
    There are sketches for them & others shown barely begun there, showing some more details, for instance, Dave's diesel and Eileen's electric, which are just barely begun in those pictures from so long ago, Dave's Diesel was built a bit different from sketch, it ended up with a 1-axle truck at each end, on the model they are HO PRR 4-4-2 trailing trucks.




    And the mine loco, which is based on real ones in a 1980s book, now sits at this stage,
