Hi -

Thanks for the note. Our LibraryThing catalog is our combined collection, but it's Erika who has all the good stuff (gardening, cooking, N-scale model trains, bungalows). (Can you tell who's typing this message?)

Erika's just starting on N scale too---with a layout only in the idea stage. No helpful advice to offer, unfortunately! But Harry is an experienced model railroader (S scale and getting into HO). He hasn't arranged a space for a layout yet in our current home. . . . Anyway, his suggestion is to join a model railroad club if there's one in your area. If you join an N-scale club that uses modular layouts, you can start with a small scene (about 2 feet by 4 feet?) and you can meet other people full of helpful advice. Also you would be able to run your train(s) around the combined layout, which is nice if you don't yet have your own layout or just as a change.

Erika (also a fan of Powell's Books) & Harry
