I am working on acquiring a lot of track and I have a ton of N scale stuff left from my 2x4 I used to have. 

Now I see OO9 and I am intrigued by it. 

I may be a bit crazy to even suggest it, but since OO9 is just OO scale narrow gauge, 
is it a feasible idea to make a small Inglenook somewhere for a industrial park, or is that just a little stupid/inane. 

The plan I am using will already have 2 power packs and it seems that 3 power packs might be a bit ambitious.

Why not have a dedicat4ed OO9 element with its own power supply, as a practical matter, it would make electrical isolation and trouble shooting simpler.

Well, there's a well-established H0n2-1/2 or H0n30 section with lots of commercially available equipment- why bother with a mix of scales (1:87 vs. 1:76)? To whet your appetite: Here. And have a look at this thread: http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=6020

I agree with Forrest, run the HOn30 with it's own power pack...OR check out the NARROW GAUGE RAILWAY MODELING ONLINE website, they have OO/HOn30 locos run with RADIO CONTROL! If I was into HO narrow gauge, I would be r/c anyway. Heck, if I was into any scale HO, etc...I would be r/c'ing everything.

Woodie
