Take a Ride on My Layout.

If you have the time, take a ride around my layout. I hope everyone's holiday season was awesome!

Very cool. I bounced through it and will go back and watch the whole thing.

Here is my holiday layout for 2019. My cats would enjoy a full house layout. Not sure I could live with all the derailments thought.

Happy New Year!

Nice videos gents. Volphin, either you're a bachelor or have a very understanding wife! I showed my wife your video and she told me not to get any ideas. lol

Here's a tour of my unfinished layout. Still a lot more track to be added. You're riding on the tender of my Lionel Legacy SP cab forward while we pull a string of steel ice reefers and pass a couple of local freights from UP and Santa Fe.

The best way to do that is have a house BEFORE a wife.

I took the ride. Your floor layout covers a lot of territory. You ever step on the track ?

At key floor traffic points it take a LOT of abuse. But it's Fastrack, it bends right back into shape when required. The trolley line is the only holiday track addition. The rest stays up all year. The Christmas Village in the library is actually populated with more conventional structures throughout the year.
