    I had to look up OO gauge and see that it is the most popular in the UK....... Lionel used this gauge when they introduce their trains, I believe somewhere in the 30's, don't quote me on this I am just working from memory, which is highly questionable at times. I grew up with a Lionel back in the 50's in the US.

    My original post was more specifically to Narrow Gauge Lumber railroads in the American West, I enjoy studying the history.

    I have never tried G scale, but will get there someday. Went from HO to O scale as it is easier to build bigger scale as I get older and vision is not what it used to be.

    Hello,
    I've seen others post their other interests, so I guess it's okay for me to do so here. Never know if others have question or need help with these of hobbies.

    1. Narrow Gauge Scale locomotives and rolling stock: Narrow gauge railroads were used in the US west for both lumber and mining companies. The narrow trains allowed them tighter radius to get through mountainous areas. See images of some of my examples, I model HOn3 and On30 scales.

    2. Vacumm Tube Ampliffiers: In WWII, my dad was in the Navy and worked in the sonar labs and also taught electronics to the enlisted. When I was about 13, he taught me Tube electronics and I scratch built my first amp, a stereo and guitar smp combo. This was back in about '64 when solid state was just starting to take over. Now I experiment, design and build guitar amps as musicians have discovered how much better they sound. I hard wire everything.

    More to come as I have more hobbies in addition to building boats.
    Regards, Joe
