This book:

And two op sessions on this layout (the narrow gauge portion):

Launched me down the path of modelling Colorado narrow gauge.  Not in that order.

I still enjoy "revisiting" "Narrow Gauge in the Rockies," by Lucius Beebe and Charles Clegg.  I long ago wore out the dust jacket on mine, as I've had it more than 60 years.  I think you'd like it too--if you can find a copy.

This winter, I have discovered a new liking to an On30 set I've had for a while, enough to get it out of box, and get things running, it was used, with lots of run time.

Now running great.  It's a Bachmann 2-6-0.

 I'm not ready to change gears just yet, even after riding on the narrow guage in Colorado. But if I ever did switch... On30 is a compromise, sure, too wide for Maine 2 footers and too narrow for the 3 footers elsewhere, but what's (wait, I'm not going to say that)
