Controlling small-scale, live steam locomotives can be tricky. They may stall on upgrades, and often run too fast on downgrades – and, slow switching is hard to achieve.
Most ready-made track products are only produced in standard gauge, and handlaying track is an intimidating proposition for many. However, by using models from one scale and track components from another, you can achieve the effect you’re looking for. Many hobbyists choose to work in O scale, where the larger models have more “heft” and opportunities for showing off detail that would otherwise be lost in a smaller size.
