First of all I must say that I am simply amaized at the quality of work I have seen. Are you sure some of these folks are not just going out to a real train yard and taking photo's. I have recently recieved the trains I had as a kid (Linonel, American Flyer and HO ) and would like to set up a layout for when my grandchildren come over. I have a space about 10' x 14' that I could use. I don't have a lot of time for many details but I wanted something the kids could run. Mayby 4 or more trains at a time with lots of switches overpases and operating cars. Does anyone have any suggestions about Gage.
