I had been thinking for a while, not of getting a steam engine, but finding a bunch of 35-40lb rail and collect track maintenance cars. Hand Cars, push carts, speeders, velocipedes, etc... Either build a loop, or a length of track that's a few hundred yards (or whatever fits on whatever land I eventually buy) and make that a garden "railroad".

Better yet, find an abandoned track. Scenery will be ultra-realistic!!!

Well...nothing can beat the feeling when I sit behind the throttle of my 1:2.5 steamer, crack it up and something really moves - compared to the 1:1 mockup of a 3' loco that offers only surrogates -but - to each his own.
