Hi Richard!

Wow, you have really amazing train stuff! I like your old layout (especially as it featured a Bavarian theme ;) ) and I'm totally overwhelmed about the sheer size of your new train table. I'm sure we'll see great things next spring! (Also the display caes beneath your old layout are fantastic!)

Unfortunately all my Playmo trains are boxed. I own most of the electric engines from geobra and also a single small LGB steam engine (which in fact started my G scale railroading before Playmobil went into trains).

My regular layout is set up only once a year and runs around our Christmas tree - two weeks to go!

Are you going to post some pictures of your Christmas layout?

Thanks again for your very nice comments.

All the best,

for some reason I always thought that was David's room
it was a very cool room, but I guess it'll be even better once you're done, Richard
good luck, and please post pictures of it once you've finished :D
Enjoy the elegance and fun of 1900 with The Victorians photo story! :gent: ;D :sherlock:

Has anyone tried to do a suspended track?  I'd really like to get into Playmo trains, but I don't have a lot of floor space, and I don't want to put them in the yard (I'd hate to see what the weather did to them!).  We saw a G-scale train suspended in the Durango-Silverton train station, and as far as I'm concerned, that could stay up all year in my house ... but I have no idea how to do it.

Thanks again, Richard!  You're the BEST!  :-*  8-)

Hmmmmmm ... no time for this Christmas, but I bet I'd get the "Best Wife in the World" award, if I did that for next Christmas.  I might have to contact our contractor to knock a hole or two in the walls  8}  ;D

I missed it, and I'm not seeing it off the bat now ... which section is it in?
