0e - 0-scale modeling of 750/760mm (2'6") gauge

I always seem to make life difficult for myself. There have been a number of 0e models of Württemberg rolling stock made over the years, but now that I want them, they have all been discontinued. I shall endeavour to kitbash or scratchbuild what I want, but I shall have to make some compromises along the way.

Please click on one of the images to view more info on that item of rolling stock (if available). As I work on each model I will devote a separate page to each of them.

A small note on couplings: The subject of couplings is a little "fraught"; you have to decide on prototype fidelity or functionality; and the two do not tend to come together. Many people use H0-scale Kadee couplers as they are small, neat and work very well. The problem is they don't look anything like the real thing. The 750mm gauge railways of Württemberg used a central link-and-pin buffer coupler. Henke Modellbau make these and Addie Modell make the Sachsen (Saxony) equivalent. Both use real links and real pins making (un)coupling fiddly - but they look very good. It comes down to an entirely personal choice; form or function. I have a lot of experience with Kadees and they work very well, but I will test some Henke couplers before making a final decision.
