Hi Everyone,

 

This is my first post here. I am over at Railworks America usually.

 

Anyhow since I live in Western Australia, I would like to know if there are any 1067mm gauge concrete (and wood) tracks available?

 

Brisbane, Perth and New Zealand (Auckland) all use the 1067mm gauge. Plus WA and QLD and NZ have probably over 10000km worth of track length for country-rural (mostly wood) tracks and the potential is limitless.

 

I have used Blender a bit before but to create a loft is a bit daunting. I did make a few 2D Trees and 3D buildings. I'd love to make some 3D stuff that is Australian, like the blackboy and Eucalypt tree (California has a lot of Eucalypts!) http://www.ebay.ph/i...29/350379813845

So if there isn't any of this gauge what I am asking for here is some help to make them, or get them made. 

 

 

Daniel

I'm not familiar with using Blender, but you may be able to find the answers you're looking for at UK Train Sim:

If you're willing to expiriment, you can try using matrix transformations on existing track to create smaller sized narrow gauge rails, ties and ballast?
Don't know about switches and such, or geometry in general to put it all together in your route though ...
Most certainly this will require serious XML editing.
