As to how many on this site are into G- well nigh impossible to tell, because of visitors, members who don't post etc. We certainly would like to see more people in
any of the larger scales-even those who are brave enough to invent scales of their own--(you know who you are, and Big Brother is watching!!).
"G" is a number of scales, all around 1/2"to 9/16" = 1 foot, running on track that is
1 3/4" gauge.
The reason that most people build outdoors is the size- a 40 foot long freight car
ends up being almost 2 feet long.

I'm a large scaler playing in 17n30. "G" of course is nothing but a generic term since large scale in my opinion is anything that can be run outdoors (1:24 and larger) but too small to be ridden (ride on trains).
Large scalers are a minority on this site, but that doesn't keep me from trying to entice my fellow forum members over to the dark side.
