Here you will see Luke my Grandson, what a helper he is for Grandpa. We are making a train set that will be handed down to him. He most likely will be the one to put the finishing touches on the train table. But as for now I am just a big kid and we are having fun building it together. Next we will be making a mountian and tunnel. The table is 5 – 4×8 sheet of chip board. If you have any ideas for this, please send them on to me, Thanks

Nice Job, looks like G-Scale… Hope to start my outdoor layout this coming spring, been saying that for the past 5 yrs now… Started building my 5 yr old an HO table this yr. She and I are having a great time with it. I’m sure Luke will love this for years to come, but, Love the memories of you two working together even more!!!

I always wanted a train set like that but never got one. Now that I’m a big kid instead of a little kid I don’t have any room for one. That sure does look like a grand train. Maybe when it’s finished you can post another picture or two because it is really looking great.
