      Locations of Ride On Trains

      To answer my own question -

      "Does anyone know a list or site listing other clubs or organizations with 1 inch, 7.25 inch and 7.5 inch ride on sites?"

      Found this answer this morning, seems pretty up to date

      I've got a 7.5" track about 3/4 of  a mile from our house in Port Orchard, Wa.

      Ric,

      Are you aware of the magazine "Live Steam and Outdoor Railroading" ?  http://livesteam.net/

      My local hobby shop in MD carries it, and I often buy one to read.  Fascinating stuff about the larger scales.

      Hi Pete,

      Thanks for mentioning that.  I have had a free subscription and it was really over my head as far as the machinist side of it.  I'll give it another try.
