Charles...Currently I do two scales. S gauge "hi-rail," kit bashing and rebuilding old American Flyer I find in junk boxes at hobby shops and train shows,and yard sales. I also do some scratch building in S as well. I use S for my "common carrier" standard gauge railroading.
I do On30 Micro Layouts and kit bash and scratch build in that size too. I build Micro layouts to represent narrow gauge "industrial" railroading.
However, I've been a "rubber gauger" for many years, having at least dabbled in every scale and gauge from Z up to "ride on" trains on 7 1/2" gauge track. I have a website that tracks some of my adventures at: http:/stonerails.weebly.com .
As you might imagine, I've been at this a long time, having been started by my father as a child in the fifties. He was a professional model maker for years. Learning from him shortened the "learning curve" considerably!
hi Charles, the train club I belong to has a S scale group that meet on a week night, they say S scale is the proper scale to model Queensland rail which is narrow gauge.
I can't see that as the real QR trains don't hang over the bogies that much, QR diesels are huge for narrow gauge locos.
would like to model Swiss in S gauge as their narrow gauge does hang over a fair bit.
I started out in N scale and switched to HO scale when my some had trouble putting the trains on the track.
He still can't put the HO scale trains on the track found out when he was 3 he has MD, gets worse over the years and now in a wheel chair.
My next step is move into controlling the outdoor layout with the computer so he can get involved, looking at switching to DCC too.
Your link doesn't work was looking forward to looking at it.
I have a friend in Oregon that is a professional model builder, he builds sets for movies and adds, he is into HO scale.
