That was tongue in cheek - I was into model railroading as a kid and I still own a bunch of classic Lionel trains - in storage with my parents at this point. Maybe in my retirement I'll build a new layout.

I think I had more fun designing layours than building them though, and I never did build the big layout my dad and I planned. We setup a special room in the basement for it, built the table top - and that's as far as we got.

There's an image...

High-school-age-you and Dick building a model railroad setup. I'm getting a positively Teutulian vibe. It'd be the new Discovery Channel series, American Model Train. :)

ow ow ow... my brain...

Oh course, that crossed over and now I have mental imagery for:
Monster Model Train - 'extreme' model trains
ModelTrainBusters - recreating great train disasters in scale form to see if it really happened that way
