Mark, that is the most impressive train set I’ve ever seen! Hats off ( and I have many) to the creator of it. Is it yours? That is sum’m else! I have two almost-teen nephews who just love trains and we’ve given them two sets so far! They will flip over this one for sure!!!!!

It’s still a really cool train. Wish I had one like that. Garden trains like this was my inspiration for the old west style birdfeeder I made. I have to go check and see if it was you that recognized that when posting comments about my birdfeeder. No, it was a LJ named Dan. I wonder if the railroad owner would like some more buildings? Be glad to give you some more ideas.

There’s a house close to me where the homeowner made his entire front yard a train yard. He pulls the trains into the basement window at the end of display. Pretty impressive. Next time I’m by there, I’ll try to remember to snag some photos and post them here.

You got a mini saw mill to machine those logs?
