Hi, all. After two decades of reading about it, I decided to get my toes wet and start small. At 46, the eyes are starting to go but I think I can still manage HOn30. I was thinking about a 15" x 72" shelf logging setup to start. Now the questions: 1) Would a Gumstump type layout work with a logging theme? I know things would be a little tight and I would have to be selective about what to include but could it be reasonably done? 2) Which track to get? I don't like the looks of Atlas N scale. I was thinking Micro Engineering/BK or maybe Peco. What do most here use? I appreciate all the good information on this site and hopefully I can share some insight as I go along, at least what I've learned NOT to do.
