Kept all my Lionel stuff from years ago and now my 4 yr old is into trains so, along with his new stuff, my old stuff will be coming out a little at a time.

The new track is a big improvement and all the old stuff will still work on it!

I still put up a decent sized Christmas display. I don't do model RR year round. I'd get bored to quickly. I like building models, not running the trains.

I was the same way....I can see myself getting into building models & doing th scenery but not spending allot of time actually running the trains.

Nice work Chris!

funny to see this. I just getting started on an N-scale layout. I'm going crazy sitting in this house doing nothing. Figured it would be great to do something with my hands building things again , although on a smaller scale. You can make most of your city from scratch from cardboard. Theres all kinda things to build , mountains , rivers and scenery. Train part just brings the kid out. lol

I built this HO layout & I will tell you model railroad building challenges you in many areas; construction, math, art, electronics. I learned to build circuit boards for sound, whistles, lights. I tried to learn how to achieve depth perception for painting the back ground. Radius, elevation & banking for laying track & so much more.
Model railroading would be a great tool for teaching school children & I'll guarantee they won't get bored.

Beautiful job. I love the rockwork. Is it hydrocal? The first pic of the roundhouse. Are the trees to the upper right a painting or are they a group of trees. I can't tell from the picture.
