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. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

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

Bill
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.

Great videos. It's cool you have your track all through your house.

Why would you get any ideas? You already have a room a little smaller than South America :)

Nice consist.

Thanks. While my layout is long (48'), it's very narrow (13'). With doing 1/48 O gauge, this pretty much limits me to a oval. I'd love to be able to have more variety in my track plan that a wider room would allow. But don't we always want what we don't have? :D

2 very nice Christmas layouts. :appl:
Maxium; what a beautiful layout and the finished basement looks tremendous.
Thanks Spence. The layout has a long way to go and the basement was a ton of work to finish (I did everything but hang and tape the drywall).

Thanks Ed! Members, please use this video as leverage to what could happen if you don't get enough train room space. The reported scowls can be turned to your advantage! ;)

That is a very nice video. Then you say it stays up all year long!!?? I wondered about any house critters, kids and a wife but you just answered my question with your statement about having a house BEFORE a wife so you must not have rest of what I just mentioned as well. Well played.
