I rather commiserate your choice of gauge, which may give the model some toyish and caricatural touch. I think there haven't been too many 361 mm feldbahn lines in manufacturing industry.

Volker, just in order to avoid any possible misunderstanding: my choice of gauge (26,7 mm) will represent original 430 mm gauge (quite common in Feldbahn operation), apart from the fact that would be only just 70 mm less than in Lainz (500 mm) ...  thanks for your input anyway ...

Cheers

PS. Let's see, if I'll manage it to avoid giving it that toyish touch ...  Roll Eyes

Gerald, you're right. I ´was thinking in wrong scale but still think this is a very narrow gauge ...

Sure you will. Just jump the shark pool.

I'd like to add another pic so you'll get a better impression regarding the size and the proportions ...

Modern Feldbahnwagen Version 3 (under Progress) is a wagon with a special shaped (angular) bottom panel, similar to some ore cars (i. e. the ones Hauk is building at the moment). It‘s comparable to the little „Sattelbodenwagen“ (exhibit #41) of the VVM (Verein Verkehrsamateure und Museumsbahn e. V.) collection or the so-called „Mistwagen“ (car for waste/scrap) in Austria, which are conversions of the cars formerly used at the hospital supply railway in Lainz/Wien.



For the ultimate versions of my modern Feldbahnwagen (with their slightly shortened frame) the tight radii are no longer a problem: Version 3 („Sattelbodenwagen“) combined with the CAT-style forklift truck on rails serving as an example

G'day all,

Even my nano layout track plan had to be modified slightly ... allthough the term "track plan" might be a little exaggerated if you look at this distorted oval ...  Wink



A big part of the oval will be covered or masked by buildings. So it will be hopefully hardly recognizable, that the train only runs around in a circle ...  Roll Eyes

Hmmmm, wait a minute ... there seems to be an empty place left in the shelf ... (starts wondering if a micro-layout or at least a diorama would fit in) ... may be it would be a little too tight - but it's worth a try ... (quits the scene, still mumbling, and starts building a card boad mock up) ...

Just putting in some colour to make the dummy appearing more attractive and explaning what's the idea ... no modelling yet - only testing, arranging, check proportions, simply "look and feel" ...
