I have added a blog post that is looking at re-kitting the table out to work with the smaller scales. the TT rail stuff will work with 15mm, N Scale works with 10mm, the bridge shown will work with either. The discussion also looks at why I am choosing 30mm basing (step down from 40mm and 80mm!).

Great post Norm and I've gone down a similar route to the one stated on your Blog.

Interesting post as always Norm Smiley

Common terrain that can be used across multiple scales and periods certainly simplifies storage issues

Thanks all, I have passed a tipping point for the collection in terms of scale and things like rubber roads being good enough to replace the MDF / felt roads and rubber rivers replacing the resin ones and have a stronger or at least a more determined sense of purpose and today am actually taking the brave and decisive step :-) of genuinely clearing old, big and heavy stuff out, with a meaningful liberation of shelf space - not just playing around the edges.

Great blog.
I appreciate the way you've referenced all the products and suppliers.

There's little more frustrating than a page that says "Look at my lovely new stuff" and leaves you guessing about the source.
