  • Hello all,

    can anybody provide some advice how to best get started with adding some narrow gauge (NG) content to EEP?

    In particular my questions are:

    - What is the most supported gauge in EEP when it comes to rolling stock (1000mm, 750mm, 600mm)? At a cursory glance it appears to be 750mm - but I could be wrong.

    - Other than buying individual components - is there a set that is a cost effective way to get started? For example I noticed that "Anlage Nossen" includes quite some NG material. Can you recommend something?

    - Just for confirmation, based on my (limited) tests with the included ELB Zahnrad locomotive: The correct track gauge is only cosmetic in EEP - any locomotive drives on any gauge - it just looks funny, correct? You can also scale any track style to any gauge anyways I assume.

    Any advice would be much appreciated - Thank you.
