G Scale News is Moving…

G Scale News (GSN) moved to a new location: Large Scale Train News (LSTN).

A new start, fresh ideas, and a slightly different direction. Still focused on 45 mm gauge of course.

Don’t worry, this site will stay online as an archive for a while. This allows me to move over the most useful posts and pages.

Make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed to stay up-to-date with the latest news in the world of large scale trains. The Facebook page has already changed its name.
