Most model railroaders in the dominant scales of HO and N would be hard pressed to name an S Scale layout they had seen in person. I am talking about S Scale and not American Flyer which is still fun but usually is considered part of the toy trains realm. So when folks hear 'S Scale' they tend to tune out the message. Perhaps it is time to listen up and look what is going on in S Scale. One of my favorite publications is the S Scale Resource. This is a free publication and worth the time to peruse the every other month issues. The new issue has a large point to point layout designed for operation in it. This should make us rethink our preconceived notions of what is S Scale. Follow this link to the current issue.
