Those who know model HO sign1
Ho for me. I have enough trouble modeling in ho, I couldn't imagine trying to model in n scale. Seeing what robin used to do with cardboard in n scale was just plain amazing.
I model in O and S scale. I'm not picky about operatioin though, I'll operate any scale. By the way, I operate the 12" to the 1' for a living.
I model in HO & N Scale. I like both scales. In HO I am doing the Chessie System Railroad & in N Scale I will be doing the Pennsylvania Railroad
Started in HO because I picked up a couple of sets cheap but after talking to the N scaler at the local club I made the switch to N for lack of room:thumb:
Ok well it seems as if HO scale is very popular around here!
'N' right from the beginning
Mainly HO, I also have some N scale equipment that serves as an easily portable layout (a Kato Unitrack train set plus the K2 turnout set).
Started in N scale. Then I got into detailing and scratchbuilding and switched to H0 for the availability of detail parts. Got bitten by the Narrow Gauge Bug and so I switched to H0n30 (then called H0n2-1/2) narrow gauge (using up my N scale track).
After I hiatus I returned an switched definitely (???) to H0 and H0n3. N is too small for my eyes now.
And yes, I have some 0 scale models, too - but no track to run them.
HO is a very popular scale Bradin. A good amount of the members here do model in HO. Then there are some that model more than one scale.
I, too, model HO. So much so that I model it in British outline. Not many of us around!!
Another HO nut here.:thumb:
However, I've tinkered with N scale and am willing to try other scales.
On 30 here. I found n scale to small for me [I tried HOn 30] but HO was fine so I jumped to O scale and loving it.
It appears I am with the majority - HO - at least for my own modelling. However, I have had a hand in others at least on occasion - G, S, N, and hopefully will get into some 1:1 soon at the local museum (time permitting - when do we switch to the 27 hour day...?).
'O' scale here. I belong to a club. :thumb: Since there is no room at home I am planning on a small HO shelf layout.
Though I model in HO and operate in N, I got a special place in my heart for a scale that's big enough to use full size power tool motors.:thumb:
HO again, although I have had TT. Built an N for my lads. Operated friends and club's HO layouts. ( brit OO as a youngster)
Almost forgot----I also had a G outdoor layout in the garden of my last residence
HO , but its all comming to an end. I'll be starting An N layout after x-mas. Just starting the planning and gathering of supplies, o yah, did i mention i have nothing in N scale as far as any engines or rolling stock. Bet the wifes gunna be happy
I am pretty much required to model in N-Scale, though I dabble a little in HO because, as I found out 8 months after I moved down to So Cal, there's a model railroad club about 3 minutes from my house (WALKING time). Heh, wish I'd have known a lot sooner, though they do meet on nights I can't make it, once in a while I get in there. And HO rolling stock kits are cheaper than dirt compared to N-Scale, and it's good practices since I have never had too much of a knack at things requiring building/working with the hands. Getting better thanks to the Proto 2k Kits. THANK YOU P2k!
