Bonsai RhB in Nm9

Recommended Posts

I've added Dapol catenary as it is very close to the plain line masts.

Would that be "modular"  :locomotive:

 

P.S. Sorry meant not to be so obscure.. is it like your Hartz layout or the 009 modular?

Naturally I have a large and ambitious plan but nowhere to put it ;) initially I’m thinking of two stations and a short run made up of two or three sections.

Seems like a great idea to encourage newcomers to the hobby. It could be adapted to any style of scenery in any country.

This one is very narrow because it has to fit my limited space. The endplate is 150mm wide, the principles behind it are the same as for the Freem009 standard on here. There isn’t one for this as I haven’t decided on the scenery ends yet ;)

With the 150mm radius track I think I could squeeze in a bit into my tiny space along a wall. I have some unitrak to play with..

I’m thinking of recreating my Rhätia and Neil’s Klein Arosa in Nm9 initially

But there are bigger ideas! ;)

This looks great! and Alp Grum would be good candidate.. not to mention a landwasser module:D

 

I really like modular idea and that fact I could swap in and out. I am pondering a couple of ideas for Nm9 and have some ideas for how I mount them to my wall. I think this might need a separate thread?

Yep I’ll probably add to this when I do mine as this was the tester for it. I’ve ordered a few laser cut ends so I’m going to start Bonsai Rhätia as a first test ;) prob early next year as I want to finish the HOn30 next, well move it on a bit ;)

If you’re going to Warley say hello as I might have the test ends with me to show Neil if they arrive by then.

Ok good to know and if it works out I’ll grab some ends from you as I would like to give it a try.. maybe we could have RhätiaMOD :D I’ll try and catch up with you at Warley

I saw this lovely layout 'Fichtelbergbahn' at an N gauge show at Redhill. The unit has been re-gauged to run on Z track as metre gauge. The layout is actually an accurate portrayal of an East German line, with the correct gradients and definitely not straight.

Thanks Ian, yes I’d like to regauge it but the cost of buying them done is too much and I don’t have the tools to modify them easily so I’ve decided to compromise and go for operation in Nm9. The Om however is finescale :)

I’m still mulling over gradients as it introduces a complication of a modular setup unless I set 2 or 3 heights and have spiral or similar boards to join them.

That looks nice Ian. I do have “some” Swiss z scale locos but don’t think I would have the courage to butcher them. But I’m happy to accept the infidelity.

Any idea what the minimum radius is ?.I feel a christmas roundy coming on .

The Kato stuff will go round 150mm radius as on this micro. The coaches look a bit odd but run fine. For a better look, where the punters don’t find a sudden 8ft gap on curves then 250mm plus looks better. Like you though this is just a bit of fun and I was testing ideas.

Yes I’m using 150RAD purely because of space constraints, to be hidden under hillsides out of view. I also like building track so may do the track shimmy between unitrak. But exciting times :D
