I do collect trains, have for my whole life. My first was S gauge ( American flyer ). Then went to HO ( 1/87 scale ). After I went to boot camp, Navy, While I was on leave I sold my HO and bought N. At this point I only have a very small lay-out 2 x 3 ft. The lay-out is a combination of N and Z gauge, My wife collects Z. The first picís are of my latest, T gauge, half the size of Z that is half the size of N that is half the size of HO that is half the size of O that is half the size of G. The engine is sitting on top of a G gauge passenger car.
