Thanks all.

The lay out is 16X18 foot with two levels. The trains are N scale.

I highly recommend the hobby, but don't get into too perfect, a rivot counter some people call them. Just have fun with it and see what you can accomplish

I bought the train for my grandson, who had absolutely no interest in it. Opened the box looked at it and never touched it again. So I told him I would take it home and build a town and a mountain around it. He laughed, then about two months later I had him up to the house. He was amazed, he comes up about every two weeks now. Helps me paint things and runs the trains.

But it is far far far from done. I am expecting another two years of work on it to get it be showable. Meaning letting other modelers look at it. I have learned a whole lot of stuff doing this. You do everything but plumbing, and I am talking about putting in a running creek bed, so some plumbing comes in to it I guess. The best part of it, or worst part is crawling under the board and doing the wiring. It keeps you more mobile for sure.

Gave UTube a shot. (not familiar, and not done before)

Went for a sign-on, answered the questions per no interest in their gambling or whatever it was they were trying to draw me into. Didn't like my answers, so will have to think about that one. Video isn't all that good anyway as my talent with a smartphone doesn't meet the detail of that word, LOL.
