Agree! I'm in the same boat with O. Only have room for a 4x8 right now but if a sacrifice needs to be made it's going to be the scenery and not the locos.

My dad always thought about switching over to HO but with the modern lionchief / legacy stuff I think he would have put that idea to bed if he got to experience it.

I listened to Michael Broggie speak at a train show this past winter.

Walt Disney did have "unlimited space, time and money " as the OP asked. So he moved up to 1:1 modeling with steam locomotives and Disneyland.

Which to be fair would be the mos reasonable answer. He even modeled a Monorail.....

Scales Modeled: On30
I like the size of O gauge. I also like On30 that is size of O gauge, but uses narrow HO track. On30 does not have much selection on cars & engines though.
