A couple of years ago out at our property in Granite Falls WA, I built a port-a-potty that looks like a caboose. This is so useful when the family come to camp out by the river.
Well a few weekends ago I discovered that moles had dug under the cement pavers that I have the Caboose-a-Potty jacked up on.
So now what? Set about building a short section of 30" gauge railroad to set it on. Got a little carried away and have 26' of track planned. So now I can say I'm modelling N30 right?
I have the feeling that we're witnessing the birth of a monster here...
I a few years, I won't be shocked to hear the track goes in a mile-long loop and you have several cars and at least one locomotive.

lest I forget - don't forget to scotch them properly before you proceed in the caboose's inside.... Yes does look like transfer car wheels.
So what does 'scotch them' mean?
