Hi all, first post here, and really new to the hobby and have a lot to learn. I had HO stuff when I was young, but that was so long ago I do not think it matters. I am interested in an outdoor railroad, and would like to do this with O gauge or S gauge track. I understand it may be challenging, but that has never stopped me before.
I do not think I want 3 rail track, but is there a type of 2 rail track that might suit my purpose better? Is there any such thing as hi 2 rail track? will it matter or help things? would that then mean i need larger flanges on my wheels to reap the benefit if hi rail? or maybe it does not matter.
I really wanted to do On30, but everyone I have spoken too and what I have read is the HO track for it would be a really hard way to go. Will I be able to have steam loco's scaled properly except for the wheels/trucks/track?
Lastly, I know this is an O forum but would anyone discourage me from trying to do this with S gauge track outdoors?
And if you are wondering, I find the G scale stuff just plain too large. I am buying a set for Christmas display/my daughter though. She absolutely loves trains.
Thx for any and all replies!
