    Very nice. Looks like a big setup that the guy’s got there.

    Must have cost a few grand to put together.

    Threw the ceiling and walls, great detail.

  • RightOfGenghis

    wonder which track the train’s on?

    My dad was into this all his life, the car parked on the drive, and the garage looked a bit like this. Really good work the man who put this “layout” together.

    I’d say the wife was pretty understanding too.

    Impressive – there will be a likely train ‘widow’ however – my Dad was a trainspotter and it drove my mum crazy more than a few times!

    well he probably had the greatest 15 years of his life and his detail is great, you would be surprised to know how many they are like that kiwi land and what a great thing to leave your grand kids, and all his wiring setup is very well done so good on him . I know of one that big and what made us laugh was it had all the points run from an old Post Office bank of coils from an old telephone exchange which was 2.4 high x 3.00 wide a complete overkill but he must have been in the right place at the right time haha

    very nice – should have taken up home brew – much cheaper, more rewarding and the car will still fit in the garage.

    Amazingly realistic
