    I was wondering how many people are running what gauges. It seems cumbersome to exctract the information from the members area, so I decided to try a poll.

    Please pick the answer that closest fits what you currently model or plan to model. If nothing seems to fit, please post what scale/gauge you run. I am sorry if I missed your scale/gauge, as I don't even know what they all are. I'm just listing those found in NMRA Standard S-1 , just z to O, plus those others that I know of.

    At this moment I have an HO layout set up in the basement. I will be tearing it down shortly to expand it.

    O will go around the Christmas tree again this year.

    N will go in my son's room as a shelf layout for him since he is such a train nut. Construction may start this winter.

    G will go out in the garden and around the pond . We are early in the planning stages right now. Construction may start in this summer or the spring of '03.

    I think that about sums it up.

    My son and I both run HO, but I would also love to try a N scale setup. A lot more stuff for a lot less room. But I do love being able to bash and build in HO relatively easily.

    How to do??? I wanted to, but didn't see an option. That's why I had to make the mixed gauge choices. I tried to go back by hitting edit, but it says moderastors only:mad: Hmmmm, a nice stable guy like me wouldn't tamper with the votes whilst in there :D :D :D

    Dear Moderator, could you make it multichoice now? Or should I start a new Poll? Maybe you can delete this one and I'll make a new one tonight? Maybe add G scale. And How about Zn3 :D :D :D

    How about a multi-scaler choice and ask them to post their scales?:D

    Ya, that's what I meant by "more than one" and "mixed", but "multi" is a better term... oops. First poll, so I claim newbyness :D

    :D :D :D YES :D :D :D

    The proposed logging forum would, in my heart, be a close second to the NG. Maybe it could be a NG/Logging forum :) IMHO: we need an NG forum because someone like you (experianced On30er) can offer a lot to someone like me (mentally impared HOn3x newby). So Idon't want to post any NG questions (or answers) on the HO forum, you might miss it. And someone like Shamus (HO scale logging GOD), probably knows more about NG than I ever will, so it even makes more sense to have an NG/Logging forum. No? :D :D :D

    Back to this thread: this is a great way to get to know who's doin' what, with all the new folks coming on, it's perfect timing, so why doesn't everyone punch in a little of what they are doing and vote :rolleyes: :p ;) :D :) :cool:

    Jon,the only problem with a combined Logging /Narrow Gauge forum is the loggers don't leave any room for the narrow minded folk.:(
