Wes,

If you are looking for something outside, but is easier on the back,
take a look at Woodie's Mogollon Railway:

You know I vote for Gn15 indoors,

where it is warm in winter and cool in summer.

Regards, Dave L. :old dude:

I'm with you on that Dave.
Much more comfortable inside.

My issue was space. 

There was no way the wife would let me take over the spare bedroom,
especially after new paint, carpet, and window coverings.

But, way out in the backyard,
I could almost have as much space as I ever wanted.

In our abbreviated back yard, I have a nice 12 x 24 plot of flat dirt,
and shade until noon almost every day.

This makes the location workable and reasonably comfortable 200+ days a year.
Summer will be brutal to work outside past about 9AM, and until the evening.

I'll have to get moved in before I can truly assess what space I will have in the garage.

Congratulations on the new home!
You have a nice clean slate to build a garden railroad.

I was able to get a covered patio off the back of the garage.





Excuse the mess. 
Amazing how stuff accumulates. 

Still have an extension to build on the left hand side. 

By using a removable bridge past the man door,
I could venture out into the rest of the yard.

Well, do I know about that accumulation.

Folks with imagination and creativity, like us tend to do that.
(Hey, I can use this for....) 

20 years at the last house and I got a 10yd dumpster nearly full from the purge.

Of course that was scrap wood, building materials, old technology
(Who needs a 56k modem?) car parts, etc.

I moved 25 times since 1975.

Dumped 5 layouts that were supposed to be permanent
(2 last ones were built in sections that were impossible to put together on the next move)
so I can feel the pain.

Jose.

I've been in this house for 15 years and have a garage crammed with stuff. 

I shudder at the thought of cleaning everything out and moving.

Livery just got bigger. Purchased an Americanized LYN.

Tony Walsham will fix me up with battery/R.C. gear,
after I get moved and somewhere to run it.

My wife presented me with a Bachmann rail-truck,
declaring it would look cool on the layout (bless her.)

Although the box says 1:20,
the driver figure measures 6' in 1:24 scale.

The stake body is, by that same scale, about 7' wide.
Hmmm?
