Hey Ladies & Gents,
This topic was created in response to Lady Fitzgerald's "Who likes Locomotives?" topic.
I'm much like her, I love trains, but I'd rather have scaled versions than the real ones.
Since I'm currently in school, I can't work on my setup. I plan on creating a Big Boy friendly 22" railway system & realistic large scale train bed. I also plan on making it easy to break down in certain areas.
Please post tips, tricks, and suppliers you've used in the past/present so others can find more out. Also, please post pictures of your setup, and a descriptive detail on why you did it, and what your future plans are.
Suppliers: ModelTrainStuff | Model Trains | Train Sets | Railroad Accessories
(Parts, Locomotives, Diesel & More) Digitrax, Inc.
(DCC & more (Infra-Red Setup))
I have such large plans, it would take me forever to finish it. But to simplify it, I want an entire garage, dedicated to my model trains. All Big Boy friendly turns, and switches. Real water flowing, lights, and sounds. I'm basing my display after my city I live in, Wenatchee, WA. It's home to the Great Northern Railway when it was operational, and is current occupied by BNSF (Burlington Northern Sante Fe). My goal is to purchase every Steam Locomotive, and diesel there is. To have them all DCC Infra-Red Encoded, and have a House for each Brand. I want to be old, and still be able to enjoy what I love, computers & trains.
