Quite a few people use Code 100 in fiddle yards and Code 75 where it can be seen.
I had not thought of that. Go on Brian let every one know how daft I am.

I thought it would work OK Beynac. While I've not actually done it myself, many have mixed the two between hidden sidings and the main scenic part as long as the 00 gauge is code 100.
Of course, if one buys converter rail joiners or converter track (Or is careful with the soldering iron) one can mix 0-16.5 track with code 75 in 00 gauge as the gauge width is the same. One just needs to adjust the height between the two.
For any reading this and may be puzzling, we are well aware there is a difference in scale with the sleepers between 0-16.5 and 00. They do share the same gauge and this is the question the original poster was asking.

That's my idea.
I also made a try with a Hornby R605. It works fine too (sorry no photo).
