    all cars are now painted. now to finish up the hitches between cars then install all rgb lights on the cars.
    getting closer to being done.. thank goodness.. has been a big job. now can start installing windows on the inside. using plexiglass 1/16 inch thick.. one long piece on each side of passenger car.
    after everything is ready will take the tracks outside and spray them with thomson weather proof deck sealer.. should protect all the wood and rails.
    still have to build the covered bridge and snoops dog house yet, but that won't take long.
    hope all like so far what i have done.
    Well I think it looks freaking awesome!
    It inspires me to think about something similar but on a smaller scale.
    Great job so far, can't wait to see a video of it running.

    Looks very nice. I was thinking of building a train for my side yard, but my skills don't allow it.
    Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    .
    How do you know if you don't try? Start with a small simple one. I made a table top model which uses a wiper motor for power. Just dive in and start a build. As you go along, things will come together.
