FT is 89 years of age. Due to memory impairment he must live in an assisted living center. He suffers from depression and is often morose. This Kato N gauge train set has been a God send to him. He has something to focus on and anticipation of things to arrive in the mail Again, FT and I thank all of you that have contributed to this success. If you pass through Oklahoma City, send me a PM if you would like to drop by. He is really pretty decent company most of the time.

The smile is genuine....he really does enjoy the simple layout. It offers him some challenges but he can pick and choose.

What a great story! I work with older folks a little bit and I had never heard of a relatively complex hobby having this effect! Thank you so much for posting!

I think it is similar to jig saw puzzles it that regard.

Just a note to keep in touch and to again thank all of you for your help. This train set has been a real success. Full Throttle is often found working on his hobby set when I come to visit. My mother frequently buys him small items to add to the collection. A local hobby store has become a great day trip activity for him, the owner of the store knows his situation and makes certain that his purchases are in line with his layout.

Hope ya'll get a warm fuzzy from this. I do.
