    I have no fixed schedule for running my engines. Generally, I run my n scale more often, perhaps once in 3-5 months. Some more frquent if i get inspired Because there are so many of them, I can only run about 10 at most each session as the oval track can only take one engine. Being small, I find N scale more likely to get jammed up if left untouched for too long. But quality varies and some gems run smoothly even after one year. The "least exercised" understandably are the LGB because they are huge! A simple oval track occupies half the free space in the living room - problem with home LTA. Hehe.

    Cheers.

      Ha ha, I agrees. My G scale takes the whole of my living room of my 3 room flat (so have to see the "weather" too :p), and it have to go under the sofa, coffee table etc. Very tedious to setup and dismantle. But once setup, looking at the train runs, feels worth the trouble.

        My train set arrived yesterday. It is a Bachmann HO scale stream passenger train set. DCC is on board but only DC controller. Since it is a spectrum series, the level of details is amazing for the first timer.

        Currently, it is sitting on the on the floor with an oval layout. It puts smile an everybody's face just to watch it goes round.

        Pictures will be up in next few days.

                That shop in Katong sells Hornby OO. If you like British trains, Hornby is good stuff. Had bought many when they were brought in by another shop in Adephi which has since closed.

                  this is a bachmann basic train set. HO scale. I do have a small collection of HO and ON30 narrow gauge.

                  The issue here is always space for most of us when you want to construct a railroad scene...

                  I do like G scale for garden railroad...unfortunately I can't afford a house wiht a garden or backyard.

                            G-scale from Piko

                            Hi, my first time here. I'm also into model trains. Currently owns a set of G scale, though not LGB as their price are really high. I've got Aristo Craft instead, as I am more into American Freight trains. Like you, I stay in HDB flat, hence not a lot space to have a layout. Instead, occasionally, I will setup the oval track for the trains to "exercise" ...
                            Dear all,

                            anybody tried G-scale from Piko, Germany ? They mainly offer normal gauge central European models with scale 1:29. It is available at www.singrails.com

                              Hi, probably I come in too late. But nevertherest...
                              Piko is known to be the same as LGB, hence you can be assured that its of great quality. I have a mixture of LGB, Aristocraft, Bachmann and Piko tracks. All except Bachmann are able to connect together without any hassle. Only Bachmann needs to do some mods.
