I think that a Ruby is a great way to wet your appetite for live steam.  I run mine on regular LGB track.  It doesnt get hot enough to melt the ties.  In fact, I mounted a servo for the throttle directly on the floor of the cab.  The heat hasn't affected it.  Be prepared for a different kind of dynamic with live steam.  It's more hands on, and a lot more tinkering.  I still run electric locos on the same track. I enjoy electric and live steam.  They are very different, but both fun in their own way.Dan
