    Hey Bob,
    I wasn't giving you a hard time about the zip ties, I was just surprised to see them. I am used to carefully laying my track, making a pattern, dividing the distance and laying a cork bed for the tracks to be secured to. The elevated set up and zip ties are a heck of a lot easier. My way is a pain.

    Hi Bob,
    Its been a while how you doin'?

    So how do you move that build around? Does it fit through a door way? Do you build it on site and then hang it? Ever done a train that circles the perimeter of the house? goes through walls and into other rooms? I think that would be really cool and a great conversation piece! One could put a series of flatbeds behind the locomotive and pull snacks from the kitchen to the guests in the living room! Hehehehe J/k

    That definitely is a neat build. Cheers!

    Very nice work. I like model trains but have no layouts at this time.
