Hello everyone, my name is Eddie. I once had an HO scale set many years ago, but didn't get to play with it much as I didn't have much room. I am starting a bit early finding info on a setup for my future home. I have always wanted a train that travels room to room throughout the house. I believe 0 scale is what I am going to do it with. I have came here for advice and tips and ideas on how to accomplish this before I start buying lots of cool stuff.

Hi eddieb, You may be aware that Pete Waterman is into O gauge and has quite an extensive layout. Check out his book on his models that has just been released.

Hi Eddie and welcome to MRF.

Always plenty of useful advice and friendly banter to be found.

I hope you have planning consent from the domestic authorities for your plans!

QUOTE I have always wanted a train that travels room to room throughout the house.

If you are ever in Interlaken, Switzerland you must make time to visit the model railway which is housed near to Interlaken West station. The model is spread over several large rooms and the trains travel from one to another through models of different parts of the Swiss narrow gauge network. For more information, check out their website via this link.

If your research leads you to the conclusion that full size Gauge O is too expensive, take a look at On30 which is the same scale but the track is narrow gauge. The most readily obtainable models are US outline and based on narrow gauge logging lines. The prices are more moderate. On30 is really catching on in the UK because the larger scales means that the detail is not so small you can't see it.
