I am preparing to re-enter the hobby and would prefer to work with HO scale. The most convenient location for the layout would be the garage -- I'm pretty sure negotiations with my wife for adequate space in the house would be unsuccessful. (Adequate means the space needed for the loops for continuous running.) However, I am concerned about using the garage: I live in the Arizona desert where the temperature in the garage can get to 110+ degrees. I don't want to start a layout only to see it destroyed by buckled track and whatever other damage the heat can cause. What do you think? Should I forget the garage and try to find some air conditioned space instead? I probably can get permission for enough space to operate N scale inside the house.
