"No correct way to model these things"??? Like some other posts that have irked me, I won't continue to post on this thread. "Correct way..." is a high minded and narrow view. Good luck with that.

Stephen,  I note that your profile says you have an interest in "G gauge trains".

Profile didn't mention what scale?

Uhhh, Hmmm. I guess I have rolling stock of all the usual scales, 1/35, 1/32, 1/29, 1/24 and 1/22.5. I also have some 1/25 scale paper card models of various European civil and military trains, which I am always intending to build but in plastic or metal. Intending is the key word here. I need a clone to work and make a living while I play with my toys.

I'm still up to my nose in trying to make money. The recession pulled the rug out from under me. Thus my outdoor layout is in parts and process all over the back yard. It is one of those things where it will be all chaos until one day it pulls together and then I'll be able to run a train around the layout. I got rid of all my O gauge stuff years ago and really have nothing to show except for G gauge stuff I had bought in richer times. But why show photos of things you can see in any catalog? When I get something done I'll show pictures of it, Until then I have lots of ideas but I will not speak of them until the words are solid models.

G is nothing but a generic term for large scale model trains. It doesn't represent any scale in particular. My stuff has nearly nothing in common with 1/29 scale trains running on the same 45mm gauge track. And it's that 45mm track that is the only common link between 1/29, 1/24, 1/22, 1/20, 1/17, & 1/13 scales.

Well, considering the advanced ages of most of  the G gauge practitioners I know in SW Connecticut I think we might say that G stands for geriatric.:old dude:
