1-1/2' scale
Posted by dfandrews on Friday, July 18, 2003 4:55 PM
Have you thought about 1-1/2" scale-live steam? I dismissed it for 30 years... thought it was for millionaires, only.
But, there are lots of clubs out there, with a few folks with big expensive locos, and a lot of us with a lot less. And/or, we run other's equipment. And have a tremendous amount of fun; with the family even!!!
Check it out.
Search the web for live steam, or hit these:
trainweb.org/vcls - Ventura County LIve Steamers (The group I'm in)
lals.org - Los Angeles Live Steamers

Then try the links from those sites.

I also belong to local Livesteam club and don't have any equipment.

You might also try www.livesteaming.com Look under Cummunity then Clubs and it list most of the club around the world as well as manufacturers.
