February 5, 1949 Uncle Walt concluded 1/8 gauge was the way to go after visiting music composer David Rose’s home in Sherman Oaks where Rose had an European style steam engine.The verdict was in, Walt would have his own backyard railroad. On his drive back to the Burbank studio he told Roy and an employee he needed more backyard space for his own railroad after seeing Rose’s 950 feet of track.
