I told my wife how our grandson would love for us to have a small garden railroad since he’s infatuated by trains. So yet another trip down the rabbit hole begins. I plan on a small oval of track with one or two pieces of rolling stock......for now.

    Rabbit hole. How perfectly described. Soon the back yard will be thousands of feet of track, and, and... Ha ha ha. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Nice engine!

    Wish I had room for thousands of feet of track!
    Lucky if I’ve got maybe 200’. Would look good
    with 2-3 cars! But, then, eventually, you may decide
    that locomotive needs radio control and full sound!

    Very true! I want to keep it simple but we all know how that goes.

    I always love how great G scale steamers look. But then, to get some of the best you have to take out a new mortgage
