I'm an older-ish working stiff from Florida and finally got to the point of doing it again. This time I'll try N scale because of space restrictions. My first "pike" was an n scale dog bone on an extremely loud hollow core door. A couple of buildings into it, I found girls. Then the military, a wife, divorce and a friends HO layout.and so on it went. Now I'm married again and have a house. I'm designing a smaller Bookshelf railroad in modules. 9' x 5' "L "in a corner would be great.
