    I'm trying to get a setup for a pediatric clinc in "G" gauge. How do LGB, Aristo-craft and others stack up against each other for quality running? Details don't matter because it will be young kids watching them.

    Thanks

    Most of the guys I know from the local garden group (www.ovgrs.org) have good things to say about Aristocraft. Paul (the webmaster for the above site, and a fine G scaler to boot) would probably be happy to answer any questions you might have. His email is on the site.

    Lynn,

    You can't go wrong with either LGB or Aristo. The newer Bachman Spectrum series are also pretty good.

    OK, now for another question. What are some good on-line stores to buy G gauge?
