My T Gauge Journey

Model Railroad@1:450 scale

T Gauge Suppliers Primary source for buying T Gauge trains and accessories located in UK. They act both as a worldwide distributor and manufacturer. As of 2020 they also have a US web store.

VCS Hobbies: US Distributor of T Gauge and reseller of products in the US.

Lemiso: German importer that stocks Eishindo T Gauge rolling stock, track, and selected accessories. They have their own line of 3D printed products; buildings, bridges, and tunnels and German rolling stock. The buildings are German-style, but several will work well for generic European or US layouts (and I would guess other parts of the world). Bridges and tunnels are universal, but they have a specific tunnel entrance that you will find on a modern ICE 3 rail network. The JNR DD51 loco is also available from their store. They support International Shipping and payments via PayPal.

NOTE! At the top of their web site menu to the right, you can customize the language and country (I have linked directly to English Language).

Shapeway T-scale: You will find a lot of T Gauge items you can purchase from Shapeways. If you are not familiar with Shapeways, it is a 3D printing service. You can upload your own 3D designs and have them printed or buy items from designers that have set up their own shops.

CMR Products: The on-line store has an extensive range of North American railroad and vehicle decals including some weathering decals. Go to [Store] and search for “T scale”. Every decal set has a “Scale” dropdown menu where you can choose “T Scale (1:450)”.

TGauge Buy and Sell: A Facebook group where you can buy and sell used, new and custom made T Gauge products. 

CustomZscales: Makes and designs precut card stock kits available directly from CustomZscales, eBay, or Etsy. When you order from CustomZscales you get free shipping. The primary focus is on Z and N scales but “a bunch” of T gauge structures are also available. If you order directly from the CustomZscales website or Etsy you can order individual buildings and specify the scale with a drop-down menu. From the eBay store, you can buy a couple of building packs that combined gives you about 50+ structures. NOTE! not all structures are available for T gauge. Sean B the man behind customZscale has a YouTube channel where you can see more of the buildings.

MSR Signal模型電子部品ショップMSR: Japanese distributor and reseller of Eishindo T Gauge products. Their on line store stocks all the basics such as track, power controls, figures and other accessories etc. The Rolling stock is primarily Japanese. MSR Signal and Lemiso (in Germany) are the only two resellers I am aware of where you can find the JNR DD51 locomotive. You will find street lights and printable buildings of their own design. A really cool product is a functioning (lights and sound) Japanese style level/grade crossing signal with an IR sensor, check out the video. The web site works well with Google translate. 

Lsgb.RailScale: Supplies vinyl printed liveries and 3D printed shells. You can get kits or as “ready to run”. Products are made to order and “ready to run” locos are made/decorated by hand.

Scale Model Buildings: This is a UK company that supplies printable buildings in 1:450 scale for T Gauge. They have designed 30+ buildings in 10 different packages that you can purchase directly from their site as an instant download. You can of course buy any other scale and just reduce the print size to achieve T gauge scale. They support credit cards, Apple Pay, and PayPal.

GS Models Supplies: A traditional local hobby store in Somerset, UK that also has an online store. This is the only place I am aware of where you can still find Electra Railway Graphics BR vinyl liveries for T Gauge. Electra stopped making them a while back so this may be the last available.

NOTE! Only mainland UK shipping, but they point out that if “you live outside this area” please contact them. If you live in the South West of UK (or visiting) you should stop by.
