I do not understand the narrow gauge with using the indy track? is not the track really hard to find?
why not just use standard track and make a bigger scale engine to make standard narrow gauge? that is what everybody else does in the modeling train world... :)
No it wasn't hard to find. I had 16 pieces of track sitting in front of me from a couple Alien Mothership sets.
As it turns out I've ended up building a smaller scale, standard gauge train instead of a narrow gauge loco. It's ended up about half way between mini-fig and micro-fig scale, perhaps it's kid-fig scale.
It would be great to see a nice big oversized loco on standard Lego track like you suggest but that was never where this project was going. You'd need a lot of bricks and probably at least two XL motors to get it moving with the oversized rolling stock you'd also be building.
In the non-Lego railway modelling world that would be the similar to running HO/OO scale trains on N-scale track which is a common way of approaching a narrow gauge layout. The size of loco you are talking about would be approaching G-scale.
i still dont get it... black track and only curves... :)
These are the only Lego narrow gauge track parts currently available. You don't get that with some train track available, somebody might actually consider running a train on it?
