N Gauge by Derek Gillkerson


This Diorama was intended by the manufacturer (NOCH) to be used For the American “N” Gauge system. However, as I have no knowledge of the American system I decided to make it into a German/Swiss layout. (Have not much knowledge of that)!

The size of the layout is 37” Wide x 37” Depth x 10” Height.

All track and the controller are by KATO (Japanese).  Gather the Diorama was constructed to take only the KATO “N” Gauge track.

Diorama is constructed from a plastic preformed unit, with a lot of hills, tunnels, roads etc., are already there, just add “Population”, road vehicles and rolling stock.

Rolling stock is from Brawa, Fleischmann, Minitrix being DMU’s. The two trams are from KATO. Running sessions can alternate between the DMU’s and the trams. Also a recent edition are some track maintenance rolling stock by Hobby Train.

The only two points on the layout are electrically operated.

The Diorama and most of the “Population”, KATO track and controller were obtained from “Bye-lines”. Tel: 07526106741. Email:- leslie.mitchell4@ntlworld.com

The base for the Diorama was manufactured by “Model Railway Solutions" of Poole, Dorset.

This Diorama is my first venture into “N” Gauge starting with Continental “N” (1:160).  Have enjoyed making that Diorama etc.,  that I have purchased a second identical unit from Les Mitchell (Bye-lines) and intend to have that as a British “N” (1:148) gauge system again using the KATO track and controller.
