    Just received an email from DCC Concepts outlining their new dummy Westinghouse Pneumatic Point motors. These come in N scale, OO scale and O gauge. See links below.

    N : https://www.dccconcepts.com/product...197243221&mc_cid=a66419a87a&mc_eid=2ae22d4d8f

    OO : https://www.dccconcepts.com/product...197243221&mc_cid=a66419a87a&mc_eid=2ae22d4d8f

    O : https://www.dccconcepts.com/product...197243221&mc_cid=a66419a87a&mc_eid=2ae22d4d8f

    Only if DCC Concepts would manufacture them in HO scale for the Australian and European markets...

    Cheers, Gary.

    Well, the website says they are OO/HO. Which does pose the question, is it based on 1:87 or 1:76? Assuming they are 1m long in real life (i can measure one in point cloud tomorrow) then there would only be a difference of about 1.6mm anyway.
    The height and width difference would be quite negligible.
    Or am I missing the point?
    Cheers
    Tony

    If you can prove there may be a market for them, then why not suggest it to them? I thought they were a NZ company anyway? Sure the original address when they first started retailing was none UK?
    Failing that, see if someone had drawings and we could always look at a 3D print?

    You're right Andy, but not NZ. ;) Richard started the business in Perth, Western Australia. I'm just surprised he hasn't looked into HO scale models of these...

    Cheers, Gary.

    Ah close... in view of that, he may be more receptive?
