    Hi Pistonhead, welcome aboard, one of the things we O scalers have been doing for the past few years is trying to promote O scale, especially the 2 rail aspect, I'm also a 2 railer, my entire diesel roster is EMD, I like to do mostly modern, that is up to about 1980, I like the earlier era's, but I also like the stuff I grew up with, so I like the more modern stuff up to about the early 80's.......................;) ;)

    Hi Pistonhead:
    You didn't indicate which part of Canada, but if you're in Southern Ontario anytime, there are two layouts that an O gauger should see.
    Toronto model railroad club written up in July 2002 Model Railroader.
    Aberfoyle Junction in Aberfoyle (Hwy 401 and 6) is a beautiful effort by about 6 guys (and wives).
    Both of these layouts have open houses twice a year (i think) and the Toronto club has regular meetings.
    Worth seeing even if you aren't in O.
