There is lack of slow but cheap narrow gauge sets publicly available, not counting Serbian or Japan sets which are rather mainline sets, and existing narrow gauge tracks are not so cheap.

Main assumption of 600mm narrow gauge set is to provide cheap solution (especially infrastructure maintenance) for games with hard settings/high base costs, for easy company startups, local transport solutions, industrial supply distribution etc.

Thanks to andythenorth courtesy, I used HEQS steam locomotives and freight cars. I focused on prototypes build in Germany, they worked in many other countries. I also added two types of passenger cars and one mail/passenger car with option to rebuild into diesel railcar.
Rolling stock have 3 livery options and is fully autorefittable.

Because typical narrow gauge track are too wide for HEQS rolling stock (and too expensive), I decided to add dedicated tracktype 'ng60', which look similar to tram tracks and its costs are balanced to set low speeds overall and capacities.

600mm Narrow Gauge set is available on bananas on-line content service.

PS. Todo list: add diesel locomotive and horses.
Not planned: electric locomotives.

Just downloaded this set and they are excellent.

Great for bring logs from your Logging Camp to the main line sidings for transfer to main line trains.

Works with your Wired too so that even better.

Congratulations .. well done.

No, I stated it at the end of initial post, no electric locomotives are planned. Maybe something like HF 130 C or LKM Ns1 diesel locomotive to expand lifetime of this set.

New 1.0 version was released.
Beside of costs tweaking and depot repainting (with snow version), I added minecarts and horse, which can pull these minecarts (or regular wagons, however they are heavy). Minecarts and horses are available from y. 1700.

Slight problem with version 1.

Previous versions worked with NuTracks and your Wired when loaded after those too, but version 1 unfortunately doesn't work no matter what order I tried.

Tried it on it's own and has a darker set of rails not the light ones in previous sets.

Tried it with only NuTracks and Wired thinking I might have something else loaded that conflicted with it, but still now allow me to use.

I also tried different years 1700 and 1930 thinking might be a date problem, but sorry still not work.

EDIT: I using OpenTTD 1.6.1

Strange, I cannot reproduce this issue, it is working with or without nutrack, even if nutrack, metro track, wired, trackbed and pipeline are present, and nutrack have its own narrow gauge track forced, all is working.
Could you elaborate, what is wrong? Any error messages?

Think I found the problem beside the problem being me ..

In my NewGRF Settings I had both 0.08 and 1.0 was available to choose from, when I choosed 0.08 all work, and when I choose 1.0 not work.

So I went into the newgrf folder and removed .08 completely and presto and all working fine now.

Just one of those strange things.

Cheers pal .. hope you have great Christmas and New Year

New version 1.1 is available online.
I added diesel locomotive to extend timeframe of this set up to 1970.
Project is open for translations.

New version is available, with two diesels, the last one is weak and slow, but last in purchase list forever. Cargo capacity is tweaked, special double log trailers are added, two kind of horse harnesses are available for early stages of the game.
Track is somewhat darken to avoid high contrast between reserved and normal track.
