Hi All, I've been avidly reading these boards these past few days. I enjoyed the traditional "Christmas O-Scale" layout as a kid, with one of my favorite memories being my Dad and I setting up the "train board" and his old Lionel steam engine and my diesel, with a couple of Plasticville houses form his childhood. Last year my wife and I bought an MTH O-scal for our own Christmas train. All this has got me thinking about building a "real" layout with scenery, etc. that would be more of a perm. fixture. We're currently apartment dwellers, so I'd like to build something small and N scale seems like the way to go. We're planning on moving to a house next summer, so perhaps a "door layout" will be in my future, but for now something that takes up a couple of square feet and could be moved around when not in use but still big enough to give me a chance to experiment. Any suggestions for books or good websites to start out? I have done some googling and have many pieces of infomration, just not sure they all fit together in my head yet. Thanks!
