Default Modelling in N gauge

In the past I have only modelled in 00.

Can a member recommend a good link, my interest would be mainly creating a landscaped layout rather than running. Is it practicall or should I stick with my previous interest which was 00?

A few months late in replying to this, Jon - Being retired myself, I find that dexterity and eyesight cause a few problems with N gauge.

Over the last five years I have done the scenics and landscape for three gauges, 3mm, 00, and N, and found that 00 (or 4mm) is proving to be the easiest to cope with. Also much more in the way of commercial bits and pieces are available.
Available in N as well, but they seem to vary between 1:120 and 1:150, which is not always made clear.

Thats OK, I have to confess I have gone back to train simulation, used to be into MSTS but Steam with DTG and its forum supporters are coming back and getting very professional.

I model in 00 and N but N is my favourite mainly because you can incorporate a lot of scenery in a smaller space. Now that I'm getting older and my eyesight is not as good, it is a bit fiddle to work on but I get round this by using a magnifying lamp for close up work.

As rolling stock is smaller good track work is essential as is careful handling of steam locos. It all depends on what your aims are.
