Money, the hobby has become very expensive compared to when I started 45 years ago.

Despite being a relatively small area I would go with the model railroad and just use a small scale train

The 4x8. I would still model HO because there is no way I could see N scale stuff.

If you count online time as railfanning then I spend more time railfanning than modeling and I only model about an hour during an average week so I will go with modeling because it seems to be working.

I think an alligator pond. I snorkeled around smaller (4-5' and smaller) alligators once (during the winter season when even though it is warm they are still lethargic) and they didn't pay any attention to me.

Would you rather go fishing and catch lots of small fish or one very large fish?

Lots of small fish. Later, when I am sharing my fishing stores with you, the fish will become bigger. :lol:

Would you rather have a family singing group (like the Brady Bunch) or have a family that performs live skits at festivals (like Michigan Rennaissance)?

The second. It sounds much more interesting although I do love me some Brady Bunch

Similar to the fishing question. I really like these quality vs quantity questions.
I say more frequent but smaller and continue the question.
