Thanks MG. Don't forget Gn15. I found an answer in a French forum: SL-500 and SL-100 can work together without any issue (same gauge and same rails).

I agree with MG on this one.

Did you see the kits Smallbrook Studio make for both 0e (0-16.5) and Gn15, along with other scales and gauges like 00? May open up possibilities.

I watch the Smallbrook website with a great interest.
But I don't have the skill and the patience to build a Smallbrook kit
And most important, I haven't enough money to buy one of these kits

Try the open wagons. It comes in two parts. I split mine to line the lower chassis part up. It is designed to fit a Dapol wagons chassis, though other chassis can be filed down and cut etc to fit. It is reasonably priced. I think 12 or less. I put pics of how to build in in the Mountain Goat Wagons Works somewhere though I made my own bits to fit instead of using a complete chassis.
One Smallbrook Studio coach I made earlier I needed a longer wheelbase Dapol chassis. As I didn't have one I cut an old short wheelbase Hornby chassis in half and filed it down to fit and mounted as two sub chassis parts instead of one long wheelbase chassis.

It works ! There is just a slight difference between the height of the sleepers.

Why should you want to join them together as the sleeper look way wrong. They do join together OK but one is Narrow gauge profile sleepers and the other is OO gauge profile. Join them together and they look rediculas. Also the sleeper height is diferent.

Maybe he's going to use the ordinary OO track in a hidden fiddle yard. I've got loads of old slightly damaged Peco track, ideal for hidden sidings. I wouldn't mind having a small narrow gauge layout.

The 500 is about a pound more a yard than 100.


Quite a few people use Code 100 in fiddle yards and Code 75 where it can be seen.

I purchased a length of Peco`s new bullhead code 75 track yesterday, it looks great only cost a fiver. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...XcRGozY-S4hW2A
