    hmm, i like, tell me more about G scale, and garden trains, have any good links to shop around? i dont know anything about G scale, how big is G scale, can you give me the in" of the engine, so i can get a feel for it, or take a pic with something next to it so i can get the size. im thinking i would like one running around when i get the yard pond made with the fish in it. 2 hobbys in one, fish and trains, got to love it!

    i live in iowa, wouls i have to take it down for winter? or would the track be ok out side all year round?

    G gauge track is 45 mm between the rails, vs. 32 mm for O gauge.

    Scale is a function of what you are modelling. On G gauge track, if you crunch the numbers, standard gauge is 1:32; U.S. narrow gauge, (3 foot), is 1:20.3; Euopean meter gauge is 1:22.2.

    Here is a picture of some late night silliness, a European narrow gauge steam tram pulling a rake of standard gauge coaches, all on G gauge track.


    As far as bringing track in for the winter, it is not necessary. Track is solid, usually brass, but sometimes aluminum or nickel-silver. You may need to clean the track surface for electrical conductivity if you are running track power, v.s battery power or live steam.
