    1:87.1 if you're going to do any of that Proto:87 fine-scale work... ;) :D

    www.proto87.com They supply 1:87.1 true scale stuff. They have very nice handlaying track supplies for prototype track as well as wheel sets, couplers and so on. I'm working on trying to convert over to Sergent couplers. That is as prototype as it gets.
