Okay, I have an ON30 Climax loco that I am wanting to use in a lumber mill setup. The majority of my layout is O-scale. I love the Shays and Climax loco's so I broke down and got one. Question: What is the best size of HO track for the ON30 loco's and rolling stock? What is the best power pack for an ON30 loco below $200 dollars please. The train will not be going long distances probably an 8 X 8 area, but it will be pulling log cars loaded with real tree branches for logs.
