Hello, I am currently in the process of converting part of my basement into a train room. I'm trying to decide which would be better to model in (HO or N). The room is approximately 14x8 with a 1 ft wide ledge on 3 sides. If I include the ledge, the area is increased to 15x10. I am looking to build a folded dogbone layout for continous running. I am interested in both passenger and freight. I am not planning on modeling any particular area so almost anything goes. What I would like to do is create a layout that allows for "high-speed" passenger lines mixed with freight and the complications that come from sharing track. I currently have a small HO platform, but I was not planning on reusing anything other than the trains and the controller. I know if I switch, I would have to start over as far as the trains go. So, is it worth the switch to N or should I stick to HO.
