Are any of the G scale transformers/power packs water proof enough to be left outside to run the trains?
They do make weather resistant transformers, but as far as being totally waterproof I don't think so. Some will build a waterproof box to place it in.
What kind of ground do you have? Grassy? Stones?
How big are you planning?
