I am a retired chap who has been a railway modeller for many years. When I moved house a few years ago I needed to start from scratch again. At that time I seriously considered N gauge but in the end opted for OO. This was for two reasons. Firstly my eye-sight wasn't getting any better and I thought N was a bit fiddly. Secondly, I didn't think that N gauge steam engines with their chunky wheels looked all that realistic. I have recently decided to go DCC and I'm not finding it easy to get decoders into some OO engines so what it would be like with N gauge I can only guess at.

I suppose that it really comes down to what space you have available and what sort of layout you want. If you want a double track main line layout and you've got less than about 10ft by 6ft available then N it is. Fortunately I'm using the garage so have a decent amount of space for OO.

Good luck with the project whatever you finally decide.
