Reply to "Is S scale still an option?"

After a few weeks investigations - I think I'm going to start in the 50s and focus on finding the SHS ATSF F7 sets.  I'm thinking DCC with the ESU control system.

Strongly considering modeling Lawrence, KS - I spent a lot of time at the depot there as a kid.  That MCM depot went up in '56 - replacing the old depot which was damaged int he '51 flood.  I've got Sanborn maps as late as 1921 showing quite a few industries - and many of those buildings are still there.  Being in-between Topeka and Argentine, all rolling stock and locomotives would be fair game.  Route out towards Lecompton / Tecumseh is very scenic with the railroad sandwiched between the bluffs and the Kaw river.  Would make for a nice rural loop track element.
