HOn2 a mini...

Postby chris69 » Sat Sep 14, 2019 9:20 pm

Hi guys,
well I am back in Germany and while packing things in the US I found this little train that was packed up for almost 20 years.
The loco was build using a Bachman N Scale Switcher with a scratch Cab. The dump cars are old ROCO ones.
Since I am very limited in space (69 X 39 CM ) I am looking for an oval track set that would fit the space. Looking around,
TOMIX and KATO seem to have something that would fit. If anyone has more info or experience with them, I would love to hear about it.
thanks for your help
Chris

Alas Chris, we are so much quieter nowadays.

For example, only twenty or so members have signed in since you first posted, so if they’re not clued up on what you ask...

Cheers,

No sweat Chris, was more of a satirical post on my end......
Am just in a rut at the time. The Stuff available on line does not give any sizes and the stores here do not carry it.
So thanks anyway.

Is HOn2 standard 9mm track? If so both Kato and Tommytec make pre-built oval and circles in around the 6" radius. I hope this helps.

Thanks David ! Really appreciate it! Helps a lot. All I could find was the Japanese print on the packages that are shown on line.
Have a great day

If the online photo show the packaging it may give the radius. There are apps available for smart phones which allow you to read the Japanese characters.
