  • Title: T Gauge Headquarters: FAQ
    Descriptive info: Frequently Asked Questions.. What is T Gauge?.. T Gauge is presently the world's smallest commercially-made model train scale with self-powered trains.. T stands for three, which is the track.. gauge.. in millimeters—that is, the rails are 3 mm apart.. The.. scale.. (model ratio) is 1:450, which means it would take 450 model cars placed end-to-end to equal the length of its real-life counterpart.. From left to right: T (1:450), Z (1:220) and N (1:160) scales.. Photo courtesy of Chris Schmuck.. Who makes T Gauge?.. The developer is.. KK Eishindo of Japan.. What kinds of T Gauge products does Eishindo make?.. Eishindo makes several Japanese commuter trains, plus track with curves in four sizes, buildings, people, trees and other accessories.. See.. Available Products.. for a comprehensive listing.. Does Eishindo make anything but Japanese commuter trains?.. Not yet.. They are planning to expand their product line in the future to include trains from other parts of the world.. How much does a train set cost?.. 103-series four-car train set.. costs around US$65.. Train sets do not include track; a.. track set.. , with a (battery-powered) controller and accessories, is around US$75.. Where can I buy T Gauge?.. There are many online shops selling T—see..  ...   first practical demonstration of what he called the zero generation at the Tokyo Toy Fair 2006.. The train could only operate on straight track, but it was enough to get the ball rolling.. By the end of 2007, under contractual obligation, a limited quantity of the first generation products were released to a mail order company, but Mr.. Hirai was not satisfied with the quality (there were also delays due to lead in the paint used by the Chinese manufacturer).. So, market distribution was postponed until the summer of 2008, after many improvements to the products.. The second train set, the.. Hankyu type 9000.. , was scheduled for release in the autumn of 2008, but Mr.. Hirai postponed it for the sake of improving quality.. The drive mechanism has been completely redesigned for improved performance.. Says Mr.. Hirai,.. We should not be afraid of any delays if it makes [things] better, since we have to compete with ourselves.. Mr.. Hirai is delighted that T Gauge is enjoying an enthusiastic following around the world.. He has indicated that many new and very exciting products are being planned.. If you have a question that's not answered here, please.. email me.. Copyright © 2008-2012 by..

    Descriptive info: 103 Series Train Sets.. The venerable 103 series was manufactured for 21 years beginning in the late 1960s; more than 3,400 units were built.. Originally introduced for the Yamanote Line, the train sets eventually spread to other systems all over Japan.. Eishindo's 103 Series is their first production train set, representing the following Japan Railway lines:.. 001.. West JR Osaka Loop Line (orange).. 002.. West JR Hanwa Line (sky blue).. 003.. West JR Kansai Line (yellow-green with yellow stripe).. 004.. West JR Fukuchiyama Line (canary yellow).. 005.. East JR Chuo Line (orange).. 006.. East JR.. Keihin Tohoku.. Line (sky blue).. 007..

Except for color and lettering, the various sets are all identical, consisting of four cars, two powered  ...   released.. The wheels of the powered cars are magnetized so as to grip the steel track for traction as well as power pickup.. This is really the secret to how T Gauge trains function: they are otherwise far too lightweight to pull themselves along the track, let alone pull other cars or even stay on the track, for that matter.. The train sets come with spare etched stainless steel pantographs (below, left), plus a bending tool (below, right) to shape them before installation.. Also included are optional pilot detail parts (below, center).. Modelers originally had a choice of coupler style to use.. The train set comes fitted with miniaturized Arnold-Rapido style couplers, plus a packet containing optional hook and loop style couplers.. Switching coupler type requires transferring the tiny spring on the coupler shank from one type to the other.. Detailed product review.. Technical specifications.. Tools Replacement Parts..
