Halloween train -  - Tycho for president? by Tychoaussie Halloween train -  - Tycho for president? by Tychoaussie
We have a family here in my community that puts together a little event every year in which we're invited. They have a miniature train complete with tracks, mini buildings, and everything that runs around the perimeter of their 5 acres of property. Actually, they have two trains running at the same time. The track is, I think, 12-inch spacing on the aluminum rails and the engines are either electric or gas powered. (I think they have both). We all come over in October when they decorate their yard for halloween, and ride the spooky train through the forest, over the trestle, through the tunnel, and past the graveyard. It's directly adjacent to the CN railway line so the CN operators really like to toot their horns and wave at us when they speed by with their freight. Tycho made his appearance this afternoon, and this little girl eventually warmed up & began following me about, tugging on my leg & wanting attention. She just learned to walk, I think, and even dropped her chocolatey treat in order to grab hold of my nose with her candy covered hands & mouth. Err, I don' mind.... though Tycho needs a bit of a wash tonight :)

Thanks, Splashy! 

I do indeed have a lot of fun with this great fursuit, and I suspect that there may actually come a time when I wear it out. People here seem to love seeing Tycho Aussie play with their kids and I keep getting asked to return after each event I attend, so my request list keeps growing. That, and the children I meet keep an eye out for me so now there's this 'flock' that appears wherever I go, ready to tell me stories of where they last saw me. It's awesome.

You are a brave one, holding a baby. The one time I had one thrust into my arms, I was petrified and held perfectly still, because, as you probably realize, you can't feel a thing with furry paws, and babies don't bounce if you accidentally drop them. I now politely decline to hold one, even though I know it would be an awesome picture.

You've educated the rest of us a little on geology, my turn to educate you a little on trains.
From what I can tell from your pictures and the size of the railroad cars relative to the people, it looks like 7 1/2" or 7 1/4" gauge track, which would put the railroad at a scale of 1 1/2" per foot, which is a common scale for ride on trains. The reason for the two gauges, guys in the north-east like 7 1/4" gauge, which is more accurate to scale of portotype gauge, the guys everywhere else like 7 1/2" gauge because it's more stable for ride on.
