  1. Does anyone have general experience with adapting an HO-scale structure to N-scale? My reason for the ask is that I've purchased Faller's massive HO-scale Gripper Tunnel Borer. I bought it to adapt to N-scale, which I currently assess will primarily require replacing the 1:87 handrails and steps with PE or plastic in the 1:150 - 1:60 range. From reviewing the instructions, there are some additional work spaces that may need downsizing as well; I may build those first to assess. Obviously this beast is going to look even more massive in an N-scale context than it does in HO, It builds to about four feet in length), but that only increases one's impression of the technology. Designed to cut a single width tunnel bore, I intend to depict this boring a 2-track bore (for which it is actually undersized, but so be it). Intended use is in a double 3x TTrak module (perhaps increased to 15-16 inch depth), with active tracks in the foreground and the TBM working on a higher level cutting a new route. The module is in the design stage and I will post some in-development and build photos when I really dig into this summer 2024. Here's a link to the Faller model (and accessory kits, not purchased): https://www.modellbahnshop-lippe.com/Landscape+%26+Decoration/Trade+%26+Industry/Faller-130900/gb/modell_403840.html I'd welcome general comments and suggestions and any leads to handrail supplies. I project to need about 6 linear feet of rail. Many thanks!
