New Large Scale Menber to forum
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, July 25, 2003 11:18 AM
New Large Scaler almost ready to go!

Three issues. Have 50' x 55' screened pool enclosure in South Florida. Layout will probably be a dogleg with 50 foot straight runs. Have acquired great LGB Engines and rolling stock.(3 engines and 22 pieces of rolling stock) Only one has DCC and sound. Rest are vintige but in perfect shape.

Questions:
1 LG D Digital MTS, Lenz DCC, or the simpler Aristocrat Train Engineer.

2. LGB or Aristo Brass track. Will need many 8' diamoter curves and many 4 or 5' straights.

Best place for DCC instalations. (I am not capable by myself!).

I would greatly appreciate response from anyone with experience or ideas in these three areas.
P.S. I have just read the forum and I love being part of it! i also subscribed to Garden Railways Magazine.

Welcome[:D]

Have you contacted anyone from any of the Florida garden railroad clubs? The Florida Garden Railway Society has four divisions and they are quite active. They can probably help you out in many ways, from ideas to even man (or woman) power! If you need contact info, you can email me personally and I'll give it to you.
