    what scale are you working with? My dad and I used to have an N-scale model train set-up.

    Post some pics when you can.

    I'm doing HO. I'm still doing the finish work of the room, I'm on my 2nd year of work. My brother helps me so far we've put in a ceiling using engineered I-beams, raised the floor, put in walls, installed an HVAC unit and insulated the whole thing with 6" batting. I'm on my 3rd 5 gallon bucket of mud and still need to do a lite coat and then sand. I've got a sprayer lined up so I can paint the walls and ceiling. So far I've put about $4k just into the room and overtime has been pretty lite lately so it's become almost piecemeal work but I won't retire for another 10 years and that's when I want to get it done.

    No G is bigger, commonly called Garden Scale and you get stuff to build it outdoors, we've got 3 acres and that's what the wife wants to do along with a trestle to cross our creek.

    Yeah forced perspective good way to do it! Man that Z is so tiny, my eyes have a hard time running trains on a friends N scale layout and I figured HO would allow me to build a pretty big empire without tasking my eyes too much as I go into my retirement years.

    yea it was a major pain in the arse to put anything on the track with the z scale. (lining those tiny wheels up). i did have some n scale stuff. we used to put it in the xmas tree.
