Took the morning to go to the local model railroad club's annual fall train show. If I'd ever get my basement set up for it I'd like to build a model railroad. Going to the show helped get me thinking/planning to work on it this winter when it gets too cold to work in the garage/shop. Anyone else have a layout??



We used to go to all the shows in NH when we lived there. I do miss the Concord show so much! Even went to the Springfield show one year. Littleton was okay. As was W. Lebanon show. Concord was my favorite, though. There isn't much model railroading here in ND unfortunately. Fargo has a club, but that is 80 miles away for me. Guess I'm on my own out here.

Tyco, thanks for shareing those pics.
Yep, looks like you're right into it. Nice

My dad has a big Marklin setup.
I'm gonna guess, about 700 ft of track, and I have no idea how much rolling stock
He started buying it for me 45 years ago, and the took it over when I got to be a stupid teenager, and
tried doing stunts with it.
His health is failing, and mom and I where talking the other day, trying to figure out what to do with it.

That is a very nice collection you have there. I've been collecting for almost 20 years now. HO scale. Cannot wait to get my layout built. Starting to get the fever again. I think I may get out every one of my engines and set them up for a group pose. Sounds like fun!

I'm happy to know that you have train sets Caleb, and that they are surprising JD related. I may get to see one of them someday.

In my early twenties, I moved out to work at Ford New Holland and didn't know anyone there right away and didn't get much cash. Around christmas, I built a 5x6 HO oval display which had 2 levels and ramps between the 2 levels. You can run one train on each level... or put one on a siding and run the other by itself. Just one will go up/down the ramps every other time around. I think it's been about 6 or 7 years since I put it up around the tree. When my daughter lost interest in it, I stopped bringing it up. May need just a little work. I had it painted white like snow with a grey under the track to make it look like a track base. solid wood. It will be back out someday. Probably put over a hundred hours into it.

Dean
Get it out ! fix it up ! and enjoy it !!!

I know the feeling of the kids losing interest and it stinks...but no reason you should not enjoy it...especially the amount of hours you have in it.

I have made a significant investment the last 4 years in HO for my then 8 year old...he is 12 now and trains do not hold the same interest today at 12....sad.
