    Its been a while how you doin'?

    So how do you move that build around? Does it fit through a door way? Do you build it on site and then hang it? Ever done a train that circles the perimeter of the house? goes through walls and into other rooms? I think that would be really cool and a great conversation piece! One could put a series of flatbeds behind the locomotive and pull snacks from the kitchen to the guests in the living room! Hehehehe J/k

    That definitely is a neat build. Cheers!
    Yes it is in sections then assembeled on site. I have m/f joints and set screws holding it together...Bob

    Very nice work. I like model trains but have no layouts at this time.

    Hey Bob,
    I wasn't giving you a hard time about the zip ties, I was just surprised to see them. I am used to carefully laying my track, making a pattern, dividing the distance and laying a cork bed for the tracks to be secured to. The elevated set up and zip ties are a heck of a lot easier. My way is a pain.

    Excellent work! I still have an old Lionell train set I use to play with when I was a kid. Good times.

    Excellent work Bob. I have N scale trains, quite a bit smaller. Are the tracks held to the bridges with zip ties?

    The hardest part is making all of the welding fixtures. They go right together when all the major parts are done...Bob
