After investing in a lot of modern stock I discovered Pre-War Lionel Tinplate. There is something about it that has me hooked.

NICE!!!
how do you determine tinplate? by looking?
They are made out of tin. :p
Prewar stuff mainly. All metal trains.

But there is Modern tinplate being made now, a few of our members have them.
I think Bob the poet has some, I am surprised none of them chimed in yet.

The first time I perused your pic.'s, I missed the added ties on the tubular. It just registered as one of modern upscale track systems.

The whole layout is very nice (I came back to look again).
