    I'm wondering if anyone has any pics of their completed G/O/S Gauge layouts? Especially O gauges. I know Ozzy is working hard at his but I have seen almost nothing for O gauge layouts in the forum. The HO and N gaugers like showing theirs off, what about the big guys?

    The Wander has it's own set of passanger cars. IT was sold as engine and 3 car set. It did not include any track or transformer. BTW, it is a PS1 MTH engine.

    Cool. I wonder how hard it would be to locate a set of the cars now? I don't recall ever seeing them on eBay or anywhere else. Then again, I haven't really looked because I didn't know they existed.

    You'd better hurry up or it will be time to take it down before you're done. :D

    I don't "do" model railroading. I play with trains. I can run eight of them at once. The noise is deafening and I love it. Buildings are placed wherever they will fit and that's hardly anywhere, since there is so much track. When I ran out of lateral space, I went "up" three "stories." I have bridges that span nothing. I drag "stolen" passenger cars with non-matching engines. I create lash-ups with mis-matched road names and diesel types. I have been known to "gut" dead Protosounds engines and replace the innards with Williams boards. I have no idea how to use Protocouplers and don't care to learn. The whole nine yards is built on top of dark green indoor/outdoor carpet. The entire layout is a mockery of model railroading. You wouldn't want to see photos.........but no one has more fun than me.

There is as much track as will fit in the room and when I had used up the space, I went up three "stories." I have single-handedly kept Gargraves in business. There is no rhyme or reason to the "design." I drag "stolen" passenger cars with other engines and create lash-ups with mis-matched diesels and road names. I have been known to "gut" non-working Protosounds engines and replace the innards with Williams boards. Buildings are placed where they will fit, which is hardly anywhere. I have bridges that span nothing. The whole nine yards is built on dark green indoor/outdoor carpeting. It is a travesty of model railroading and you wouldn't want to see photos however, no one has more fun than me. I think I'll go downstairs and initiate a "cornfield meet."

    Well, the first post above was "lost." After I had tried again with a second post, the first one magically re-appeared. Whatever....you get the idea.

    If you were a woman I'd love you...... :wave:
    :D

    You seem to have a similar take on model trains as I do. Lay some track and let 'em fly.
