[modeleng] Re: Track guage

Many years ago when I was about to retire and take up building live steam 
loco's I attended a Midlands Model Engg. Exhibition where some old guy gave 
a wonderful presentation on the delights of the hobby. At the end of his 
presentation I asked what gauge would he recommend building in. His answer 
was simple - as large as you can manage. He was right.

Since I like large, green mainline locos 5" gauge is the largest I can 
accomodate within my workshop and estate car, so 5" it is. It also means I 
can do decent (as opposed to indecent!)work on both elevated and ground 
level track.
