Thanks Keith! I'm sure it WILL be. That is a staged photo; I won't have the parts for a power hook-up 'till next weekend. :sad:

Ray, thanks so much.

Folks, you'll notice Ray's posts include an invitation to visit his website. If you haven't done this (or if it's been a while), I strongly urge you to do so NOW.

Ray's layout is spectacular and his photography is stunning!:2t:

My hope is that the pictures will inspire others to give ride-IN, 7 1/2 (or 7 1/4) a try. This is a pioneer branch of the hobby but I find it more rewarding than anything else I've done in a lifetime of model railroading.

7 1/2 gauge track cost less per foot (a good deal less) than G gauge. My layout only uses a space of about 75ft square. The power truck under the cab/tank is an off-the-shelf item as is the power controller.

If I can do this, YOU CAN TOO!
My door is open if I can be of help.

@uncle Bob
you did not lure me into 7.25 " or 7.5", but into 9.5" gauge:wave:
