Other than a few European routes Narrow gauge is under-represented for BVE..

Can anyone point me at some ideas?

I have considered this as a new project, especially some of the freelance narrow guage railways that can be found both in real UK and in model form, especially if the railway built in BVE is a railway that is preserved as it were as it would allow for all sorts of different locos and items of rolling stock, the only issue being steam locos. I take it nobody has really entertained the idea of building a steam loco for BVE?

I have a crazy idea... because building a 'Full' Steam Engine Sim isn't yet possible in OpenBve, Can i suggest you make a 'ToyTown' route using G Gauge looking stock?

Well I won't personally, not at the moment anyhow, but its something to consider by all means, surely all that would need to be done would be to make the stock much larger than the track as apposed to messing around with track sizes...Or the same size trains and smaller track...?

Any further ideas?

Well It was more a 'fantasy route' than someone making the Ravenglass & Eskdale.. (Which was also a 3ft Guage mineral Tramroad in it's early history Smile )

I'd suggest the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. In my eyes this is the world's most successful miniature railway; a long route, a use as public transportation... A dream for any miniature railwayer.

Huh? I'm sorry but I fail, on a semantic level, to understand your post.

Well, would surely be an interesting fun feature Wink Though I'd prefer the somewhat more discreet BRIO railway and derivates (you know, that wood rail thing)

A lot of Japanese kids do like to play with these kind of stuff, ya know.
Ah, god bless 'em. Can't they enjoy traditional british pleasures like snorting coke and beating up grannys?? Never mind! To each his own, as they say. And no harm in it at all at all. I'm just a bitty sceptical it would catch on with the primitives in the west. And you dont get any further west in Europe than where I'm sat. LOL

On a less fantastic note, Does anyone here know anything about 3ft in Ireland?

I'm assuming that some form contributors would be able to confirm or deny if certain routes used to have 'loose' onward connections..
.. and it strikes me as entirely plausible that somewhere along the WaterVille route there might have been a peat line...

@Wongie I know. Jeffrey. It's a pity the brits can't import a few container loads of manners from Japan. There so much yobbish behaviour now.

@ Alex Not sure about the exact gauge but look into the Cavan and Leitrim and the West Clare, links to their websites on the celtictrainsim.co links page. I know next to b*** all about narrow guage, except I've been on the Ffestiniog and it's great. Trouble is all sims I know are poor with steam, except maybe an Italian work??? (someone will know the one I mean)

OK, so this isn't drivable, but this is what I'm working on at present:
Narrow Gauge 1160_28

Drivable isn't so much a problem as building the valve gear to work properly.
Last time we had a discussion on this, the consensus was to build a set of ~10 objects (The more used, the smoother obviously) and use these as an animation set.
I think someone also figured out how to make a simple pushrod work, but I can't remember the details.

There's also a drivable Italian one over here:

I figured out the push rods, as these moved parallel to the track, but the connector rods and such was just too confusing and i thought i was quite good with .animated files!

So if you get the code please share Razz and if i ever figure it out i'll also share Razz

Michelle had written some connector rods code IIRC, doesn't anybody have it?
