You can't have TOO MUCH fun!!! Stick out tongue

Great job- that's so cool! Just like the kind of layout I wanted when I was a kid. Maybe when I retire I'll have the time to build one like that myself.

That is so cool. Ol' time-y sifi is always in style, then to add in Lionel! Can't get more  authentic than that. Alien Big Smile
