How many locos do you own? Obviously only N gauge locos need be counted!

I do so wish you had not asked that question! I have just had a quick look and if my stock list is up to date - 45 :o.  The majority are diesels, with about 7 steam engines. (I have to type this quick before SWMBO comes back into the room.)   :)

Can a few, (a lot), of forumites hurry up and put bigger numbers please? Then I can say "See, I am only a beginner", should SWMBO see this.  ;D

Far too many but never enough! :D

Split about 60%/40% steam/diesel.

Gulp! Now I must stress that loco building is the mainstay of my hobby and I've been doing it for a long time so well over 200  :goggleeyes:

I was a late starter and only have a small layout (7ft 6 by 2ft 6) but so far have amassed 15 steam locos, 5 diesel locos and 2 DMU sets. Unfortunately the one I would dearly like to have is the DJM Clayton Class 17 but it does not seem this would happen. Unfortunately I can only run a maximum of three trains at the same time so most of them sit in the storage drawer for long periods. There are some other locos I would like but it doesn't look like they will ever appear in N Gauge.

I shouldn't criticise...

...I have 13 LMS steam locos, 1 Western diesel, 1 LNER steam loco, and four US Burlington Northern diesel locos...

...oh yes, and no layout!

 :dunce:

(But I do have a test loop!)

 :D

I seem to recall a similar thread a year or so ago. Then, I had too many. Since, I've sold a few. But I've bought too many. :hmmm: So I've still got too many. Which somehow doesn't seem to be enough. :D

The diplomatic answer is a few more than I need, but not as many as I want

The slightly less diplomatic answer is about 30. Ill admit I didnt need the second HST that Ive just bought, or the 56. Everything else is vital, though.

due to the risk of SWMBO reading this, I would have to admit to more than 20,

but I'm not saying any more without legal representation  :)
