It's All Your Fault

Damn the Raiwire! The Narrow Gauge section is getting me all worked up. Because now I'm thinking about an Nn3 industrial railroad micro-layout using Z gauge track. What's saving me from this madness is the fact that I'm broke. But I won't be forever, so... damn...

I had you in mind when I threw out the idea of a narrow gauge forum.  I remember seeing some of your previous narrow gauge work and it was typical DKS excellence.

DKS + Nn3 = auto-win.

Y'all are crazy!  I don't have the dexterity issues that either of you (@David K. Smith or @Dave V) have, and I wouldn't even consider Nn3.

No way I could do Nn3 either...  HOn3 seems to fit me just perfectly though.

Remember, DKS is the guy that built an operating N scale layout in a Z scale hobby store.

Oh, I vividly recall that; I gave up model railroading and took up needlepoint for several years after that.  But, regrettably, I know that health issues have robbed him of some of those physical abilities.

Yep. Could not make another layout like that. Which is why I've only considered the Nn3 layout idea because there's commercial Z scale track I can use.

So, how would it be to serve as both the prosecuting and defense attorney for the same case?
