Ok, I got it....
I have to slightly modify my layout plan to include some mixed HO/HOm lines...

at the end there are some pros not to have started building it yet :P

BarbaP, I have similar issues. As you can see, in the photo below, I am powering the HOm track with clips from the HO one and I would like very soon to lay something more permanent down. Then again it might be wise to have a small section of HOe because someone might be asked to model the Billard ;) one day.

PS. To avoid any misunderstanding, please note that these wheels will be used on the SAR class 20. The MAN1 will run on 9.6mm wheels.

Who wouldn't my friend :D .

But what might be nice and cheap for him, might not be so for another ;).

Three axles complete, and three more to go. I had to use the Bemo Goods wagon to carry them. Maybe a SPAP wagon one day ;) .

First example looks very promising. I think it might make Balkan Models best model to date. But still a lot of work, filing, cutting, fitting experimenting etc.
