    we are expanding the layout, there are plans to move the one with the house out to a new spot and a new modular will go in there. the plans are to double the layout size and make it an L shape.

    ozzy.... ozzy.....ozzzy.... dont take this the wrong way but I think THAT o scale stuff looks totally awesome. If I had the money and the space(which I would have if I had the money)I would do a O scale layout. But what I cant figure out is the love for the other big scale stuff that looks like (remember you said you wouldnt get offended ) toy stuff.

    if you think about it, HO and N scale is not any cheaper, you just need more room.

    the walthers oil rig with motor in N scale is around 80.00, the same thing in o scale is only 40.00.

    Hey bud like I said if money was not a problem it would be O gauge. But you need the room to pull it off.
