You know your addicted to trains when....

Your layout is in your bedroom and its bigger then your bed.....
You throw out furniture to make more room for trains
You spend more time with your trains then your family......
you think about trains at work.... and you don't work at a train store....
You spend more on trains then you do on food
you spend more on trains then you do on your mortgage
You admire a beautiful natural vista and and imagine what it would look like as a backdrop for your trains.

You know your addicted to trains when....
You turn your layout on, and the neighborhood dimms.
You activate your whistle and the express answers.
You wife has to pass a ticket office to see you.
The local freight yard asks you for advice.

...when reefer is mentioned, you ask, "Athearn or Roundhouse?"

...when your significant other can only get your attention dressed in nothing more than well placed Microscale decals.

...when the hitches on your boat trailer and car are knuckle couplers.

...when the scent of Ambroid's Pro-Weld, Labelle #108 and/or motor ozone is a turn-on.

...when your wife and kids can only contact you through Post-it notes on your card order system.

...when you insist your builder draw your house to 1:87 scale.

...when your vacations are planned around Greenburg shows.

...when your investment portfolio contains only companies that are served by rail and can easily be kitbashed.

...when you think that an NMRA Mark IV Standards Gauge will ultimately unify the world in peace and harmony.

...when you can't look at anything smaller than 4" and not ponder a scaled down use for it on your railroad.

You punch a ticket for each conversation.
Yell "ALL ABOARD" to get the kids in the van.
A good day is getting a THomas the Tank train ride, visit the RR museum, and find a train show on the way home.
You get a chill in the train room and yell to the wife to "shovel more coal".
You Go to sleep with recorded white noise of a train riding the rails.
Dinner is served on a flat car.

Nice work, gents ... great laughs. Here's my stab:

... when your 7 year old kid has pajamas with little trains on them, and YOU'RE jealous!

... when you think about grooming your Woodland Scenics lawn more than your actual front lawn.

...you sound off two long blasts on your car's horn when you pull away. (If you need to look it up, there may be hope for you yet)

...you get excited when a train stops you at a grade crossing...and...

...you sit on the hood of your car to watch if you're first in line.

...you're still in mourning since July 1988, December 1987 if you're Canadian. (If I hafta explain, you're not addicted, if I don't, you're definitely a lost cause)

...you brush aside a pile of Playboy magazines when you spot the familiar blue header of a Model Railroader magazine underneath.
