    She might get into the railroading. I've tried to get her into gaming quite a few times, but it just isn't her thing! But she doesn't stop me from playing so that's a plus.

    By the way, I need to look up an article in Model Railroader about wyes and wiring. If you've ever thought of going DCC, there is a system that you can buy that has an auto-reverse system that will automagically change the polarity of a wye as the train travels through it or at least if I remember the article correctly. Don't remember the systems name but I don't think it's too expensive and would be a lot easier than wiring it yourself.

    Plus, if you're looking into DCC, then you'd be buying one anyway. Personally, I'm going DCC, mostly because you can run multiple trains a lot easier than than with DC and block control!

    Mostly what I'm looking at with the railroading is something for me to do if I ever get the chance to retire! Course, I'll probably need to model in O scale by that time so that I can see what I'm doing but hey, it'll still be model railroading!

    I've toyed with G. Ended up giving it all to a Nephew. There isn't much DCC for the N gage stuff, so I'll have to do it the old fasion way.

    I bought my step daughter an N scale setup (ez track + engine, 3 cars, caboose). She enjoyed it. I've considered doing an N scale layout, but, all my current stuff (from childhood) is HO and it would be a significant investment to retool to N. But, you can do SOOOO much more in N scale with limited space.

    You could do a virtual track. Or like me, I have a track of the whole US on my table. It is called 1830.

    So I found this for track design and virtual play. Free demo. Pretty sweet.

    I updated my layout. Already put out all the track this morning and I see that I'll need two more opposing switches to get the train out of the center loops. Blue lines are areas that i need to buy and lay. . :

    Well, I tore it all down two weeks ago.

    Then last weekend I went to Lowes, bought lumber, and rebuilt the table, smaller, stronger, and hinged it to the wall so i can fold it away. (even with fold up legs).

    I'm also going from HO scale to N scale. Decided I didn't have enough space for HO. So I've been scouring ebay for items to purchase.

    I'll post pictures soon.

    Wow that must have been a hell of a decision to make. I don't envy you. Good luck with the rebuild.

    I keep flipping back and forth between HO & N. While I like N because you can get a butt-load of stuff in a small area, HO is much easier to see. Granted, my vision is still pretty good, but I can also tell that it's not quite a sharp as it used to be!

    Plus, it'll continue to get worst. Course, unless I get quite a bit of money, I'll be in the planning stages for another 10 or so years. At least my wife is beginning to entertain the idea of me someday building a layout!

    Good luck on the rebuild and I can't wait to see pictures!

    Waiting to see the rebuild too. How ironic that when I checked out the thread there was an ad for a hobby shop at the bottom of the screen and they had trains pictured. Talk about targeting your customer.
