I want to do something very different so I found logging railroads in Mississippi and Pennsylvania that are 42" gauge. S scale is the easiest way to do this using HO standard tracks. But I need some help t get started. Anyone out there like me?

Howdy Lance, although I don't know who may be building Sn42, there must be some doing this. S scale offers many details and structures so give it a go. As an aside, many years back, before Sn3 got established, TOMALCO imported an Sn42 D&RGW C16 loco...later to be offered in Sn3. That may have been the "beginning" of S narrow gauge. I know that I have seen Sn42 locos, etc. shown in old model train mags.
Anybody have info about this viable narrow gauge plan?
BTW, welcome to Freerails. Try using the search for other mentions/topics related to this.

Hi Lance:
while I don't remember seeing an article about Sn42, there is a free S scale internet mag:
http://sscaleresource.com/
May be worth trying.

Consider joining ausnarrowgauge.@yahoo.com. certain you will find a few modeller's who model Sn3&1/2 in Australia or New Zealand. NZ Railways are mostly 3FT 6 In aka 42IN gauge, along with most Railways in Tasmania and Northern
Australia.

Hi Lance,  I am also looking into Sn42.  You can see more about me in my New member hello post that I just posted in the narrow gauge forum.  I was wondering if you ever did anything with Sn42?  
Looking forward to hearing from you.Jim Molloy
