Modelling in 014 - now and the future?

Recommended Posts

More 014 wagons would be very welcome on the market Roger. WD 'D's, or the 4 wheel Hudson variants especially.

 

Unfortunately I can't offer to sell any gauges, but I do have a set of the KB scale roller gauges for the Kalgarin code 82 rail. If these would suit you I could certainly lend you them, feel free to pm me if interested.

Thank you for the link to this thread Dava!

 

Have loved reading this thread indeed and seeing your trackplan. Very nice indeed. I do like the lighting as I do think it adds an extra dimension to a layout.

Great news about KBScale and Narrow Planet:

 

Just announced:

 

Narrow Planet is pleased to announce that we will shortly become the exclusive stockist of the KBscale O14 narrow gauge range (7mm:ft scale running on 14mm gauge track). KBscale proprietor David Janes has been working to restock the range following a busy period of family life, and has decided to partner with us for fulfilment to ensure a smooth supply.

 

It is anticipated that virtually the full range of locomotives, rolling stock and track parts will be available. All stock status enquiries should be made via Narrow Planet in the first instance, and an accurate stock level will be maintained on our website, www.narrowplanet.co.uk.

What is now the KBscale range was formerly marketed by Roy C Link, who researched and established track standards for accurate 2' gauge modelling in 7mm:ft scale. David has subsequently added his own products, with possible future developments to come.

 

Online sales are expected to begin around the end of August, and items will be also be available from our exhibition stand. Upcoming exhibitions this year include Uckfield MRC, Expo Narrow Gauge® in Swanley, and the Warley NEC show.

Hello All, 

I’ve recently been intrigued by O-14 from a BRM article in the August issue.  Did a lot of web surfing about the subject. It seem that KB Scale has a decent selection of O-14 stuff which I think is some of the Roy Link stuff mentioned. I’d love to give it a go and see what it’s like without breaking the bank. KB scale had a sampler set for £13 but says it’s sold out. I wonder if it would be available again.

Right now just giving thoughts about 2 foot narrow gauge in some sort of industrial setting.

Hi Steve,

 

Suggest keeping an eye on the Narrowplanet catalog link for KBScale above as the range has just been reintroduced.

 

There is an 014 group which anyone can join - link here to organiser: [email protected]

Track Sample kits will be back in stock at the end of the week. They have been very popular.

Well I guess is a cheap way of finding out what 0-14 might look like.  Rail is ME code 83 superglued to what might pass as ties     (sleepers) . The truck is an HO scale truck where I re-guaged the wheel sets. All this gone with a micrometer and a scale rule.
