I use portable show layouts and I model four scales.

I have an HO 3'x6' layout, an operating display loop with a shop complex and sand quarry. And a place for all those Matchbox cars I have.

I have a 1948 Louis Marx O-27 with 3-rail track mounted to a hollow core 36"x80" door. All original, even the headlight in the 0-4-0 loco. I display with my great-grandmother's cardboard Christmas village houses from the 1930s.

I also display and run an LGB G-scale layout (taken apart for transport), a box set loop with additional trackage. I have many antique toys I display inside the LGB loop.

I've been working on an N-scale N-Trak 2' x 4' module. Not finished with it yet.

The layouts work just fine sitting on sawhorses in the cellar, stood up out of the way when not in use, and they fit in the car for transport.

Just started back into trains, but we are working on a HO scale setup and I want to put a G scale setup around the ceiling in the living room. Trying to pick up more Micro Machines trains, but they are hard to find. We have a few, but not much track and what we do have is old and starting to break more often. And once I find a replacement motor for the Lego train, we might dive into that "scale" as well.

I have mostly HO stuff but then had a chance to get some really nice SP steam locomotives (both narrow and standard gauge) in S Scale so now I have both. I'm going to need a bigger house to have room for the S layout though

Well said TJ. We are definitely in a 'throw-away society. We have to be one of the most wasteful countrys anywhere.

We recycle sure, but we buy stuff way before the older stuff is worn out.

Yes, give me all the old machinery. Flathead Fords, Old Marx Toys, Marx/Lionel prewar/postwar; and lest we forget some early HO. Ah yes, life is good as long as we have more trains than we have room for. :-) I am far from there, but I guess if I can't get enough before my time is up, I can collect the rest up above.

Results are as I would have guessed. I'm all HO, a result of nostalgia from when I was an early teenager with mt Santa Fe passenger and Tyco consist on a 4'x5' sheet of plywood. My older brother had a Lionel O27 on his ENORMOUS 4'x8" layout so I, being the little kid, got the smaller scale. Haven't looked back since.
