Any of you fools do this? Thinking about doing something in the man room. My honey-do list is complete and I've got some time on my hands right now. I have a basic layout in mind and the scale picked out, but curious to see what others have. What are you running? I'd like to see some setups if you have them available.

I'm going O scale.

Charleston Area Model Railroad Club is in the Citadel Mall and opens 4 days per week. They also have a train show end of April. I have been to the train show pretty cool. The Charleston Area Convention Center had a show a few years ago that was quite nice so pay attention to the next one.

I plan on doing that too. The Citadel Mall one is certainly interesting. While I respect the modeling aspect of that, I doubt I'll do any of that. I just want a train circling the room that I can turn on and let go while entertaining. Maybe do a theme depending on the time of year (Christmas train during December). Things like that.

I thought for sure someone would have something set up, but I guess this site is full of grown ups that don't act like children ever..... shock

I hope I never grow up fully! bigsmile

My Dad had a fantastic set-up,three different size Lionels Large ,medium and the small all on same platform.The shame was that it was only set-up at Christmas, The Tree sat on one side and the TV on the other,it took up about 1/4 of our living room but was a majestic sight and so exciting every Christmas morning when we were little kids, wow what a thrill. The Christmas tree was set-up before we went to bed but SANTA came and decorated it.Ahhh the memories

One of the best posts I've seen in awhile.

My bride works with Railroad Insurance stuff.

Believe it or not, Where I work they gave us pretty nice trains and several rail cars for a safety award.

I bought some tracks for it to sit on in her office at work. Quite fitting.

Carry on.

No derailment yet. But there will be trains a runnin soon....just know that.

So far there have been holes cut, wood brought in, engineering schematics schemed, plans hatched, a toe almost broken, and self high fives on multiple occasions. It'll be awesome when I'm done. You fools will see!

Now that the track is done, I'll start slowly working on the model part. That pink foam is the base for the little town that its going to run through. There's about a million different ideas in my head, not sure which direction I'm going to go yet. Its pretty awesome though; it disappears in the wall and reappears at the other end....magically.
