The number of G Gauge hobbiests is fairly small when compared to the overall Railroad modeling hobby. I think it has something to do with the fact that you can purchase quite a few items in say HO Gauge for the price of one G Gauge Engine. Now if I were a Manufacturer of a line of G Gauge products, I would want to appeal to the largest number of potential customers possible knowing that there aren't all that many to begin with. Why is it then that there are so many scales within the G Gauge field, farther segmenting the market? After all I'm sure they are fully aware most hobbiest pick a particular scale and stick fairly close to it, to try and make there model layout as proportional as possible. Why do they not get together and set a uniform scale and stick with it? I'm sure it would be benifitial to them all in the long run, having a greater number of customers. What's the logic here, Someone help me understand. -Gromit WARNING![\B] User may not be to scale and be disporportional to other users using different scales in this group.
