Marty,

Nice looking train Room !!! Love the Logging Saw on the back wall. A must have for all us Narrow Gauge nuts !!! I'm a Large scale modeler  but all my stuff is indoors and I have a forum on here "My Adventure in Large scale". What I would like to know is how many Indoor G scale Modelers are on this site.

I am in G scale, and belong to the Gateway Garden Railroad club in the St. Louis Mo. aeria. My purchases are all narrow gauge, mostly Bachmann, with some LGB, and a few Aristo clasic series.

It is well known in the circles of those who bathe regularly, that "G" gauge stands for "Geezer" Gauge. :old dude:

Well, I wouldn't exactly call myself a G person. I model in Hn18. Try that one on for size! That's 1/2" scale (1/24) using On30 or HO track gauge - BUT - I use modified On30 track with some ties removed and the remainder paired together for wider ties. After painting and weathering you can't tell. The 18"? That's really a fib as it gauge turns out to be just a tad over 15" scale. I say 18" because my equipment tends to be larger than most individuals like to use in Gn15. The "invisible" extra almost 3 scale inches translates into another 9" in equipment width, which I sorely need.

I am doing an island railway in the basement circa 1981 based on my trip to Cuba of that year. Having a blast!
