Good evening Si,
 I do understand and though I early on tried HO and HOn3 once I discovered On30 that was it.  I still don't remember nor do I know why one day I started down the 3/8 road. As much as I like the look of On30, my railroad takes up almost a 1900 square foot basement, I really liked the proportion of the 3/8's stuff.
  I like lots of detail to bring to life the scenes we try to create and so it is important to do the same with the larger sizes.  In fact I am surprised just how long it takes to build something now.  One can no longer cheat and not add the NBW's or nail holes or hinges and the like. I like the bulk of G Scale but even in my basement I would never be able to pull it off, when it comes to detail, the costs would really be too much.  I think one can have well detailed scenes at about the same price as O scale.
 As I see it, it is all about the journey and the creativity.  Thanks for your help and thoughts it causes me to reflect and that is always a good thing.
Wishing you a Happy New Year,
Steve
