Ken,that's excellent--you are right,my father worked on his set up for yrs--every time he thought he was close,he had another idea & away he went--if my memory serves me,he started w/ a 10X10 area,bought,at the time,I think everything Lionel had to offer building wise (I keep thinking,Small Town or Smallville was part of it--then he went at it w/ mts,bridges,tressles & all that stuff I know your familiar with---another of lifes many addictions---maybe I'll get some trains & spend some time away from this Site :flex: I don't think so,who would keep an eye on SMITTY :cheers: I love the coal mine set up

After several good whiskeys we could lay 100 miles of those little tracks all over the place! :D



I like that full scale! 8-) But I think whiskey & one of those would cause massive destruction! :o :)

New Hope Engineer , that has to be awsome to drive that engine. Heck I'd be happy shovling coal just to be moving on her. :D I don't think it will fit in my kitchen though. :shock:
