I have had my train since 1951 and have been collecting 0 scale over the last 30 yrs. I am building an O-scale layout in the garage. 8 x 12'. I am building in a coal and lumber motif.:)

Welcome to the Forums, Quizshow. Lots of good people here to answer any questions you might have, and remember, we like pictures. Thirty years of collecting should give you a pretty good start! Is this going to be a Lionel layout or scale?
