G Scale Train In The House ?!
With a Go-Pro , Jim Zimmerlin shows us how it is done!
After working out a compromise with his wife, Jim immerses himself in his G-scale trains indoors!
G-scale trains are normally meant for outside, hence they are called Garden Scale or G-scale for short. But, not in this case. No garden needed here. Just long runs in and around all of the normal obstacles you would find in your own home.
Jim runs his trains inside any time he feels like it (with the wife’s permission of course) and sets the track up each time. Sometimes, his calculations can be a little off causing major derails like shown in this video.
Jim even has a video of trains playing on his TV while running his own trains!
The G scale (gauge) of these model railroad tracks:
- Gauge One scaled at 1:32 to model standard gauge trains in real life at 4 ft 8 1/2 inches
- G Scale / G Gauge 45mm (1.772 inches)
- H Scale at 1:24 used to model narrow gauge railroads at 3 ft 6 inches.
If you have or are a G-scale rail enthusiast, please let us know your comments!
